SEVERE WEATHER SHELTERS
ON THE USCL CAMPUS

Knowing what to do and where 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 should know where to direct their students. Supervisors should know where to direct staff. Staff should know where to direct visitors.

As a general guideline, when possible and if time permits, move to the lowest floor in a building and put as many doors and walls between yourself and the exterior of the building as you can.

THESE ARE THE DESIGNATED SEVERE WEATHER SHELTERS:

TRIO Programs - both restrooms

LIBRARY - Room 123 and 1st Floor restrooms. Use 2nd floor restrooms if needed.
Room 215 and Room 212 may be used if unable to move to 1st floor.

HUBBARD - the faculty and staff work area and hallway adjacent to the Dean's Office; Dean's Office; Public Information Office.

CAROL RAYE DOWLING COMMUNITY ROOM - both restrooms.

HEALTH SERVICES BUILDING - both restrooms on lower level.

GREGORY HEALTH AND WELLNESS CENTER - downstairs rooms and racquetball courts if necessary.

BRADLEY BUILDING - Room 113; both 1st floor restrooms; Basement area outside Room 006 and the adjacent stairwell; Lower level entrances to Rooms 120 and 121 (the handicapped ramps located between these two classrooms).

MAINTENANCE BUILDING - The stairwell between 1st floor and lower shop.

STARR HALL - Business Office; both restrooms.


Signs will be posted to indicate where these shelters are.
