Tornado drill set for Wednesday

There will be a statewide tornado drill at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

UNMC will take part in this drill campuswide.

"Tornadoes are a high priority threat for our organization," said John Hauser, safety manager for UNMC. "Preparation is important."

The National Weather Service will issue a test tornado watch and warning between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. The hospital will also conduct an additional test tornado watch/warning drill on the evening/night shift around 9 p.m. In addition, Douglas County will sound civil defense warning sirens.

Employees, faculty or students who experience problems or wish to make suggestions can contact Hauser or complete an online survey.
