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 coming to the university seeking higher ground (this will be many of the citizens of Rexburg).

Floodwater Cautions

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