Our world is affected, either positively or negatively, by weather. In general, we anticipate types of weather based on our climate and season of the year. Normal weather patterns produce normal weather events. However, it is the abnormal weather events, and the potential for increasing changes, that cause us concern.

Most of these events will give us some warning of their onset. Emergency Management monitors weather from a variety of sources and, when necessary, notifies the appropriate University officials to discuss the weather impact and associated response actions.

Boston University has been a StormReady Community since 2010 and is recognized for our commitment to preparedness, our outstanding communication systems, and for keeping Boston University students, faculty, and staff safe.
