In the event an unexpected severe storm hits the campus, stay indoors with the doors closed.

Do not try to leave building/campus during the storm.

Move away from windows and glass doors.

If you hear thunder, you are close enough to the storm to be struck by lightning-stay indoors.

Do not use phones, computers or other equipment that conduct electricity during storm.

If power goes out during storm, remain indoors until the storm subsides.

Wait for instructions from AWC Campus Police or authorized personnel.

If Outdoors:

Seek shelter immediately.

Stay away from water sources.

If unable to get indoors, go to a low lying open place away from trees, poles or metal objects.

Be a very small target. Squat low to the ground place hands on your knees with your head between them. Do not lie flat on the ground.

If you are in a wooded area, take shelter under shorter trees.
