On Tuesday, students and staff at Indiana University will have the opportunity to try out what they would do if in the path of a tornado. As our peers at IU Kokomo know, the threat is real — a tornado caused considerable damange near the Kokomo campus last summer. While Indiana averages 20 tornadoes annually, it saw 35 last year.
Ken Long has been named director of emergency management and continuity for IU Bloomington after serving as interim director this spring and as assistant director since 2009.
Whether you’re a long-time professor at IU or an adjunct instructor teaching just one course, you can expect students to look to you for guidance during a crisis. IU Emergency Management and Continuity staff prepared a faculty quick guide, emergency procedures grid and syllabus inserts to help you know what to do and who to call.
Nobody wants to think about horrific things happening at Indiana University that could result in loss of life for even one student or employee, let alone large numbers of people; yet many people do think about this very thing – because it’s part of their jobs.
