EXPLOSION AND/OR 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, which will give
protection against falling glass or debris.
2.
After the effects of the explosion and/or fire have subsided, notify the Campus
Police Department. Give your name and location and the nature of the emergency.
3.
If necessary, or when directed to do so, activate the building fire alarm.
4.
If the building fire alarm is sounded, or when told to leave by College officials,
walk quickly to the nearest marked exit and ask others to do the same.
5.
Assist the disabled persons in exiting the building. Remember elevators are
reserved for disabled persons. 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 from the affected
building. Keep streets and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and crews.
KNOW YOUR AREA ASSEMBLY POINT.
7.
If requested, assist emergency crews as necessary.
8.
A Campus Emergency Post may be set up near the disaster site. Keep clear of the
command post unless you have official business.

DO NOT RETURN TO AN EVACUATED BUILDING unless told to do so by a
College official.

point. Stay there until an accurate head count is taken.
The Building Coordinator will assist in the accounting for all
