Emergency Response Plan: Explosion and/or Aircraft Down (Crash) on Campus

Explosion and/or Aircraft Down (Crash) on Campus

  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 Department of Campus Police & Security Services. Give your name, 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. If possible and prudent, assist disabled persons in exiting the building. Do not use elevators in case of fire.

  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.

  7. If requested, assist emergency crews as necessary.

  8. Do not return to an evacuated building unless told to do so by a college official.
