Emergency Preparedness

StormReady University

The National Weather Service officially designated the University of Pittsburgh's Oakland campus as a "StormReady University" during a ceremony in the Office of the Chancellor on Tuesday, April 28, 2015. This designation recognizes that Pitt meets specific criteria for emergency preparedness and for the effective communication of information associated with weather-related emergencies.
