to go during severe weather are vital for the safety of everyone
on USCL's campus. With the help of the Lancaster Fire Department,
severe weather shelter areas have been identified in each building.
Please know where you should go during a weather emergency. Faculty

know where to direct staff. Staff should know where to direct

doors and walls between yourself and the exterior of the building
