More information on emergency response plans at Washington University

Dear Editor, In response to your March 9 editorial (“Expand the use of WUSTLAlerts”), I would like to share with Student Life a number of programs that are already provided to our WUSTL Community. Our “Where to Go” program is shared with our faculty, staff and students soon after they arrive at Washington University.

Expand the use of WUSTLAlerts

The tornado that ripped through Richmond Heights, Mo. on Feb. 27 thankfully caused no injuries and resulted in only a few downed power lines on the corner of Big Bend Boulevard and Clayton Avenue.

Why we didn’t issue a warning

Many university emergency management officials across the country continuously are asked questions from their university community about why they did or why they did not issue an emergency alert due to some incident on or off-campus.
