Statewide PrepareAthon, Tornado Drill Wednesday, March 11

March 11, 2015 at 7:00 am

In partnership with Spartanburg County, USC Upstate will participate in the statewide tornado drill at 9 a.m. tomorrow, March 11. This will also be our event to support FEMA’s PrepareAthon campaign. Weather alert radios and outdoor warning sirens will be activated at approximately 9a.m. tomorrow, signaling the start of the drill. Remember, this is only a drill.

As our part in the drill we will only activate the IP phone and staff and faculty email portion of our SpartAlert system at 9:00 a.m. When the notification is received, please relocate to the nearest Severe Weather Shelter Area and remain until an “all clear” is given. The entire drill should last no more than 15 minutes.
