 Explosion, Aircraft down (Crash) on Campus 



In the event a mishap occurs such as an explosion or a downed aircraft (crash) on campus, take the following action:

1. Immediately take cover under tables, desks and other objects that will give protection against falling glass or debris.
2. After the effects of the explosion and/or fire have subsided, notify the University Police at extension 3333. Give your name and describe the location and nature of the emergency.
3. If necessary, or when directed to do so, activate the building alarm. CAUTION: if the alarm fails to go off, report the emergency by telephone.
4. 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.
5. ASSIST THE DISABLED IN EXITING THE BUILDING! Remember that elevators are reserved for the handicapped person’s use. DO NOT USE ELEVATORS IN CASE OF FIRE. DO NOT PANIC.
6. Once outside, move to a clear area that is at least 500 feet away from the affected building(s) as rapidly as possible. Keep streets and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and crews.
7. An Emergency Site Coordination Post may be set up near the disaster site. Keep clear of the Coordination Post unless you have official business.
8. DO NOT RETURN TO AN EVACUATED BUILDING until told to do so by a University Police Officer.

After any evacuation all individuals shall report to the designated building mustering point. A head count will be taken by a designated University representative at that time. All individuals will then be directed to the designated campus assembly point. Stay at the building mustering point until an accurate HEADCOUNT is taken and you are directed to the campus wide mustering point.
