The emergency management program was created in 2007 as a function of the Office of Risk Management. Its primary purpose is to promote a university wide emergency management process while providing leadership or assistance in the preparation, implementation, evaluation, and revision of all hazard plans, procedures, concepts, and capabilities. This website focuses primarily on university and individual preparedness to include how we intend to respond as a university, as a community, and as individuals. We have adopted the motto - preparedness through cooperation. The concept of emergency management is relational. It is everyone's responsibility.
As the emergency management program continues to grow, new information will be added to this website. Thank you for visiting and come back soon.
Tornado Awareness 2013
According to the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center, we should expect a more active severe weather year.
"People can't let their guard down," says AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski. Violent weather outbreaks are expected to significantly ramp up during the second half of April and May.
So wherever you may be headed after finals and into the summer, know that tornadoes can occur anywhere in the United States at any time of the year.
For more information about preparedness and response, campus tornado shelters, and shelter maps, explore the Tornado Safety page.
Remember - Preparedness is everyone's responsibility. Be aware of changing weather conditions in your area.
Emergency Management will achieve a balanced and measured, disaster resistant, risk-based process that will be comprehensive in approach and will continuously improve Wright State University’s ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to, recover from, and reduce or eliminate losses due to major natural and human-borne emergencies.
