Statewide Tornado Preparedness Day Drill set for March 15

UVa-Wise will participate in the statewide Tornado Preparedness Day drill at 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, March 15.
Campus Police will test the siren during the drill. When you hear the siren, think of how you would act in case of a real emergency.  In an actual tornado emergency, you would seek shelter in lower portions of buildings, such as basements. Stay away from windows and remain inside until you receive more information.

Detailed steps about conducting a tornado drill are available on the Virginia Department of Emergency Management’s website at

The statewide tornado drill is an annual effort of the Virginia Department of Emergency Management and the National Weather Service.
