Explosion

In the event of an explosion in the building, employees should take the following actions:

  1. Immediately take cover under tables, desks, or other such objects which will give protection against flying glass and debris.
  2. After the effects of the explosion have subsided, call 9-911 and then Campus Safety at 8911.
  3. If necessary, activate the building fire alarm system.
  4. Evacuate the building (there may be a second explosion).
  5. Seek and assist any injured and disabled persons in evacuating the building.  Exit via stairway.  DO NOT USE the elevators.
  6. Once outside, move at least 500 feet away from the affected building (staying out of any courtyards).  Keep roadways and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and personnel.
