In the event of a tornado or thunderstorm warning, the City of Menomonie has a siren system that will activate and sound for 3 minutes to signal severe weather. During a severe weather warning, residents should:
- Take cover in the innermost portions of the lowest floor possible
- Avoid using elevators
- Protect yourself by hiding under your loft or mattress
- Stay away from windows and doorways
Neither the city nor the campus will sound an "all clear" signal when the danger has passed. Residents are encouraged to utilize a phone app or watch the local radar for weather updates.
Note: The City of Menomonie tests its alarm system on the first Monday of every month (April-October) at 10:00 am.
