ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State University is prepared just in case severe weather roars through campus.

The ASU Police Department recently sent out e-mails to faculty, staff and students with updated Building Evacuation and Shelter Plans. The plans outline what everyone should do in the event of a fire, a bomb threat or severe weather.

During an emergency, the university will use the Blackboard Connect Ed system for alerts.

"It's an emergency system where we send out text messages or emails and voice recorded messages in the case of a tornado warning or national disaster. We feel that we are ready," said ASU Assistant Chief of Police John Fields.

Parents can also sign up so they can know whenever an emergency hits campus. Each student can register up to six phone numbers.
