Tornado

This plan provides Residence Life with a means to respond to tornado watches and warnings for residential students.

Initial Response and Notification

A weather radio is placed and monitored in the Student Services Office and Residence Life Office during normal hours of operation.

In the event of a tornado watch (weather conditions are conducive to the formation of tornadoes):

  • The first person to become aware of the potential weather threat should contact the following in the listed order: Campus Life On-Call Staff Member, Director of Residence Life, and Security via telephone to alert them of the situation.
  • The Director of Residence Life should contact the Resident Assistants via telephone to notify them of the potential weather threat. The Resident Assistants will turn on staff walkie-talkies upon receipt of the phone call. If the Director of Residence Life is not available the Campus Life On-Call Staff Member would be responsible.
  • The Director of Residence Life will alert Resident Assistants when the watch is upgraded to a warning via the walkie-talkies.

In the event of a tornado warning (a tornado has been spotted in the area):

  • The first person to become aware of the weather threat should contact the Campus Life on-Call Staff Member, Director of Residence Life, and Security via telephone to alert them of the situation.
  • The Director of Residence Life should contact the Resident Assistants via staff walkie-talkies to notify them of the weather threat. If the Director of Residence Life is not available the Campus Life On-Call Staff Member would be responsible.
  • Resident Assistants will alert the residents on their floor of the weather threat and all present should evacuate to the appropriate location (see below). Resident Assistants should take staff walkie-talkies with them upon evacuation.
