Acting in Emergencies

  • The Office of Campus Safety will take the lead in all campus emergency situations. Please listen carefully to information provided by Campus Safety personnel and follow their instructions.
  • Remain calm and use common sense.
  • Always evacuate the building immediately when you hear an audible alarm or see a visible alarm, when directed by authorities, or when the building conditions appear hazardous (e.g. the odor of natural gas).
  • Use the telephone for emergency purposes ONLY.
  • Do not enter elevators during an emergency. If stuck in an elevator, do not attempt to force open stalled elevator doors; use the emergency phone, which will automatically contact Campus Safety.
  • Keep a flashlight handy if you are in an area that does not have emergency lighting or natural lighting.
  • Know the location of all marked exits from your office, classrooms, living area, etc.
