Health and SafetyEmergency Management
When the emergency warning sirens sound, it is YOUR responsibility to get to shelter. Take a battery operated radio with you to listen for the "all clear" signal. The department of Security and Police Services, if time permits, may telephone the Chancellor, Vice Chancellors, Residence Life Director, and Computing Center Director. These offices will in turn notify their subordinates. The campus police may also announce the warning via car loudspeakers. When the emergency sirens are sounded, all persons should immediately seek shelter in the nearest strong building. Go to the basement or interior walls of lower floors. Auditoriums, gymnasiums and similar large rooms with wide roofs should be avoided. Stay away from all windows and exterior doors.
