Evacuation/Shelter in Place

For a variety of reasons, it may be necessary to relocate part or all of the campus community to an on- or off-campus location. This plan is to reduce the possibility of death or injury through an organized evacuation procedure.

In some emergency situations, you may be told to shelter in place. If an evacuation is necessary, faculty, staff and students will be notified several ways:

  • Text and voice mail messages by telephone
  • Email
  • Campus telephones
  • Website and social media
  • Fire alarms

In the event of an evacuation:

  • All occupants of a building must leave immediately and proceed to the designated evacuation area.
  • Assist persons with disabilities in an evacuation.
  • Do not stand or congregate in parking lots or driveways as this will hamper emergency response vehicles arriving on the scene.
  • Exit the building in a calm and orderly manner.
  • DO NOT use elevators.
  • Take personal belongings such as keys or purses if safe to do so.
  • Know your surroundings so that you can evacuate in the dark.
  • Take a head count of employees and students at designated meeting locations, and notify emergency personnel of anyone missing.
  • Do not re-enter the building until authorized by emergency personnel.
