Storm Ready

StormReady is a recognition program started in 1999 by the National Weather Service to help arm America's communities and Universities with the communication and safety skills needed to save lives and property–before and during an event.  StormReady Universities are better prepared to save lives from the onslaught of severe weather through advanced planning, education, awareness efforts and effective warning systems. No University is storm proof, but meeting the StormReady criteria can help save lives.



Although traditionally viewed as a non-hazardous occupation, the artist will encounter many of the same hazardous materials and operations that are found in industrial applications including solvents, dusts, fumes, mists, dyes, and a variety of physical hazards.


East Carolina University is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of faculty, staff and students through compliance with applicable State and Federal regulations.  The key to safety in the art studio is to know the hazards that may be encountered and how to protect oneself from harm.  This information must be obtained before starting any activity instead of waiting for an emergency to occur.  Employees and students must be familiar with proper work practices and personal protective equipment and follow applicable safety guidelines.


Additional information can be obtained from the Office of Environmental Health and Safety by calling 328-6166 or stopping by our office at  210 E. 4th Street
