Arkansas State University is certified as a Storm Ready University through the National Weather Service.  This is due to the work of constant training that takes place between the university and local, state, and federal officials.  Training takes place with the local police and fire units, the county and state offices of Emergency Management, and federal officials, including the National Weather Service.  Jon Carvell is a safety officer at Arkansas State University and leads the efforts to keep the university safe.  KASU News Director Johnathan Reaves asked him how he got into doing this work.
