Kansas participating in Severe Weather Awareness Week March 7-11

In conjunction with the National Weather Service, the State of Kansas will participate in the National Weather Service Severe Weather Preparedness Week March 7-11, 2022. At 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 8, Sedgwick County Emergency Management Services will sound the severe weather sirens throughout the county.

In the past, Wichita State has used this annual drill to have all students, faculty, staff and visitors report to their severe weather shelter area. However, this year WSU will not report to the designated severe weather shelter areas. Instead, the Shocker community should use this time to review the location of the severe weather shelter area is in their building.

For more information please contact Andrew Clem, Environmental, Health and  Safety department director at 316-978-7904 andrew.clem@wichita.edu.
