4. Tornado/Severe Weather EMU Athletics uses MxVision WeatherSentry (http://www.weather.dtn.com/) to monitor conditions. Monitoring takes place from an office in the press box structure. As a backup, the EMU Police Supervisor for the event may direct dispatch to monitor National Weather Service (www.wrh.noaa.gov/sic/) data. Dispatch will in turn keep the event Police Supervisor updated as to the position of the advancing weather threat and its severity.    For athletic events, once the Police Supervisor determines that hazardous weather conditions are both advancing and are within the NCAA five mile range, he/she will immediately convene an ICS meeting with the following: Stadium/Event Manager Athletic Director or senior administrator (This individual will relay the weather information to the “head game official (referee).”     Due to the nature of these threats it is assumed that on-field officials will follow NCAA and Mid-American Conference procedures by suspending the game and directing participants to evacuate the field to team facilities. This will include the band which will evacuate to the Convocation Center.     Patrons will be directed to exit the stadium as instructed by ushers, special events staff and emergency personnel.     If the stadium is evacuated due to lightning or other dangerous weather approaching, patrons parked in the vicinity of the stadium will be asked to seek shelter in their vehicles. Other patrons will be directed to the Convocation Center for shelter. When the threat from ‘weather passes, patrons will be re-admitted to the stadium with a ticket stub for the current game.
