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.

Weather Resources

Preparedness is the key in dealing with any weather hazard.  The university sends National Weather Service issued tornado warnings via the ECU Alert system.  The ability to react appropriately to the warning means having a plan before the warning is issued. Click for more information about weather resources.
