March 16, 2009 — Tornado Preparedness Day is Tuesday. The University of Virginia is participating in the statewide tornado drill at 9:45 a.m. During the test of the emergency notification system you may:
• Receive a text message, if you have signed up for U.Va. Alerts;
• Receive an e-mail on your University email account;
• Receive a page if you are part of the U.Va. Health System;
• See a test message on the U.Va. homepage; or
• Hear the siren and announcement if you are outside.
If you are not in a meeting, a class, or engaged in a critical activity, practice moving to a safe location or take a minute to plan how you would shelter from a tornado. This minute of effort may save your life one day.
Please help us evaluate the drill by completing a brief survey.
