ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany State University is taking steps to make sure the campus is prepared for any severe weather situation.

The National Weather Service visited ASU on Thursday for training to be a storm ready school.

Representatives from the school said that they were already working towards this when the January storms hit.

"What they do is they come and assess how you get your notifications out. The process, we started in January, and we had to go through putting our application and we went to the National Weather Service in Tallahassee," said Emergency Management Coordinator Lashawnda Ethridge.

Earlier this week, the ASU Police Department said it planned to hold a tornado drill to make sure students know where to go and what to do during a tornado warning.
