Join this free webinar on April 13 to learn how to create all-weather hazard plans for campus activities ranging from small functions to large athletic events and rallies.
Students, staff, faculty and visitors spend large portions of their day on our campuses outdoors, exposed to the elements while participating in hundreds of events, including competitions, fairs, camps, parades, and field research. With dangerous weather still the number one threat to our campuses, being weather aware and understanding what to do before dangerous weather strikes are critical to a comprehensive campus safety plan.
