Emergency Information

In the Event of an Explosion or Similar Incident

  1. Immediately take cover under tables, desks or other objects that give protection from broken glass or debris.
  2. After the effects of the explosion have subsided, notify the Police at 9-1-1. Give your name, describe the location and nature of the emergency.
  3. Evacuate the immediate area of the explosion by quickly walking to the nearest exit, alerting people as you go. Notify your supervisor/dean. Be aware of structural damage. Stay away from glass doors and windows. Do not touch or move any suspicious object.
  4. Assist others, especially the injured and disabled (see Assisting Students with Disabilities guidelines) to evacuate the building.
  5. Once outside, move to a clear area at least 300 feet away from the affected building. Keep the walkways clear for emergency vehicles.
  6. To the best of your ability, and without re-entering the building, assist the Police/college staff in their attempt to determine that everyone has evacuated safely.
  7. Do not return to a building until told to do so.
  8. If a campus wide evacuation notice is given, evacuate the campus as per instructions in the Evacuation Procedures guidelines.
