Severe Weather

A weather alert radio is monitored in our facility at all times. In the event that a warning is issued for our facility the following actions will be taken:

1. Turn off equipment (if safe to do so)
2. Walk in an orderly and quiet manner to the designated interior Severe Weather Shelter Location. See Appendix B for Severe Weather Shelter Locations
3. A head count will be conducted to account for all personnel
4. When the severe weather warning expires personnel will be released from the shelter

Note: The supervisor or other designated employee will be the last to exit the department. S/he will check lavatories and other cut-off rooms to assure evacuation and will close doors upon leaving.
