Flood Emergencies

Rexburg and the surrounding area have experienced flood emergencies as recent as 2014. Follow these procedures if there is a flood.

Go to Higher Ground

  1. Move immediately to higher ground if you are in a low-lying area.
  2. Follow directions from campus and local authorities.
  3. Prepare to render volunteer aid to evacuees who are coming to the university to seek higher ground. (This will be many of the citizens of Rexburg.)

Floodwater Cautions

Be aware that floodwater has the potential to carry dangerous contaminants like sewage. If you have any open wounds or are at risk of being infected, stay out of the floodwater as much as possible. Infections from contaminated floodwater can be extremely dangerous.
