Be prepared

Severe weather poses one of the most likely risks of serious injury and property damage on campus. Whatever the season, Iowa sunshine occasionally gives way to severe weather conditions. The best way to stay safe is to know what's going on outside and what you can do in the event of a flood, blizzard, thunderstorm, tornado or extreme heat, or cold. These tips and resources should help you do just that.

Safety info, by building
