In the event a mishap occurs such as an explosion or a downed aircraft on campus, take the following action:
- Immediately take cover under tables, desks and other objects which will give protection against falling glass or debris.
- After the effects of the explosion, or aircraft fire has subsided, notify police, fire and ambulance by dialing 9-1-1. Notify Campus Safety at 777-3341. Give your name and describe the location and details of the aircraft accident.
- If necessary, or when directed to do so, activate the building fire alarm. Remember you must always report the emergency by telephone even if you have already pulled the building fire alarm. Few alarm systems are wired directly to first responders.
- When the building evacuation alarm is sounded or when told to leave by University officials, walk quickly to the nearest marked exit and ask others to do the same.
- Remember that elevators are reserved for persons with disabilities. Never use an elevator in a fire or explosion because electric power is likely to fail in both cases leaving you trapped.
- Once outside, proceed to the designated gathering point. This should be a clear area that is at least 500 feet away from the affected building. Stay there.
- Keep streets, fire lanes, hydrant areas and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and personnel.
- Know your area assembly points.
- Immediately notify emergency personnel of any injured people or if individuals remain in the affected building.
- If requested, assist emergency crews as necessary.
- Do not return to an evacuated building unless told to do so by emergency personnel, building or University officials.
- A campus incident command post may be set up near the disaster site. Keep clear, unless you have official business.
