Do You Know What to Do When a Tornado Heads Toward Campus?

If a tornado was headed for our campus, do you know what to do? Where would you go? This week is Severe Weather Awareness Week and we’re sharing some important information about tornado safety. On Thursday, we are conducting a tornado awareness drill using the UT Alert text messaging and e-mail system.

When Does UT Issue Tornado Warnings?

In the event of a tornado warning affecting our campus, the university will send a UT Alert text message and e-mail to the campus community and activates the emergency blue phones. As part of Emergency Preparedness Month, the university encourages members of the campus community to learn more about potential emergencies.
