Emergency Planning & Violence Prevention

Severe Weather and Tornado Alerts

  1. Tornado warnings are issued by the National Weather Service and the Romeoville Emergency Management Agency when severe weather is imminent.

  2. Once the warning is issued, move to a designated severe weather refuge area as indicated on the evacuation/refuge plans in each building/room.

  3. Stay away from windows and doors and sit or lie on the floor with arms folded over your head.

  4. If outside, take shelter in the nearest building or a ditch/depression. A vehicle is not suitable for shelter. Do not attempt to run from a tornado.

  5. If the building is severely damaged, evacuate as soon as possible after the storm has passed.

Once the storm has passed, call Campus Police at extension 5911 or at (815) 836-5911 to report any injuries or damage.
