Announcement: Statewide Tornado Drill Day and Campus Test Alert


Gustavus Adolphus College will be doing a test of the emergency alert system (text, email, and phone notifications) on Thursday, April 14th at 1:45pm.

The week of April 11-15 is Severe Weather Awareness Week and is a great time to make and practice your emergency plan on campus and at home.

Two of the most important events during Severe Weather Awareness Week are the annual statewide tornado drills. These drills are scheduled for Thursday, April 14, 2016 at 1:45 p.m. and 6:55 p.m. Outdoor warning sirens and NOAA Weather Radios will sound in a simulated tornado warning. The first drill is intended for institutions and businesses. The evening drill is intended for second shift workers and families.

The Gustavus Community is urged to take the opportunity and practice tornado evacuation procedures in residence and academic buildings. Gustavus will also test the campus emergency notification system during the 1:45 p.m drill on Thursday. Please make sure your emergency contact information is up-to-date (
