The inherent danger during a major power outage is panic. Try to remain calm. In the event of a major, campus-wide outage, the University of North Dakota has emergency generators that will immediately provide emergency power to selected areas of the campus. To report a minor, localized power outage, call Facilities Management: 777-2591.
Keep flashlights and batteries in key locations throughout your work areas.
In Case of a Major, Campus-wide Power Outage
- Remain calm.
- Follow directions from Facility Management for immediate action.
- If evacuation of a building is required, seek out people with special needs and provide assistance.
- Laboratory personnel should secure all experiments and unplug electrical equipment before evacuating. All chemicals should be stored in their original locations. Provide natural ventilation by opening all windows and doors. If this is not possible or natural ventilation is inadequate, evacuate the laboratory until power is returned.
- Do not use candles or other types of open flame for lighting.
- Unplug all electrical equipment including computers and turn off light switches.
- Do not use elevators.
- Emergency lighting for exit pathways will function for fifteen to thirty minutes following a power outage. In areas with poor natural light, evacuate promptly.
If People are Trapped in an Elevator
- Tell passengers to stay calm and that you are getting help.
- Call Facilities Management at 777-2591 and provide information.
- Stay near passengers until police or other assistance arrives, provided it is safe to stay in the building.
