Drill to highlight safety procedures

Participants will be asked to consider emergency procedures during alarm

Alarm systems that include severe weather alert messages in facilities across KU’s Lawrence campus will be activated during the morning of Tuesday, March 16, as part of a statewide tornado drill.

The university will respond to Douglas County sirens by activating its internal warning and “all clear” signals. The warning will cycle through twice and the “all clear” will be given once.

Participants will not be asked to take shelter during this drill but rather to consider emergency procedures in the case of an actual warning.
An evening drill including sirens on the same day will not involve the university.

KU’s severe weather policy and other emergency policies and safety recommendations can be found at
If there is a possibility of severe weather, the drill will be postponed until Thursday, March 18.

The drill is part of statewide activities during Severe Weather Awareness Week, March 15 through 19.

Information about the Kansas Severe Weather Awareness Week and storm information can be found at
