Adverse Weather hotline, 919.843.1234, has a recorded message giving the current adverse weather status for the University.
- UNC Health and Safety, in cooperation with FEMA and Orange County Emergency Services department, have provided the school with a First Alert weather radio. This radio will remain in the Administrative Services Office where it will be monitored. If the radio alerts the Administrative Services staff of a pending storm, they will notify the Facilities Coordinator and the situation will be evaluated as to what action needs to take place. The Facilities Coordinator or one of our emergency monitors will notify Faculty/staff in the event of an emergency. In an emergency, each of these monitors will begin evacuating the floor they are located on first and then assist the person on the floor below them and so on working their way to the Ground floor (in the event of a fire, out of the building; in the event of severe weather, just to the Ground floor). The Facilities coordinator will begin a check of floors beginning with the 5th floor and work down to the Ground floor. UNC’s Enviroment, Health and Safety Department maintains much more information safety during severe weather.
