Personal Contact Flyers Phone Trees Shelter In Place You may be advised to "shelter in place" rather than evacuate your building during emergency situations such as large hazardous material releases or severe weather emergencies. Advice to shelter in place will be conveyed through official notification systems.

Stay inside the building or go indoors as quickly as possible if you are working outside. Close windows to provide tighter seal against chemicals vapors, smoke and/or fumes. Locate supplies you may need such as food, water, radio, or flashlights if you have them. In case of a tornado, go to a central room or corridor where there are no windows and few doors.

In the event of a hazardous material release, turn off fans, air conditioning or ventilation systems, if you have control of these systems. Most building ventilation systems are centrally controlled and will be shut down during such events. Stay tuned and monitor official emergency notification systems information for further instructions. Tornado/Severe Weather Incident Your best protection is an underground shelter (or basement) or a substantial

steel-framed or reinforced concrete building. If your residence hall or campus building does not have a basement, take cover under heavy furniture on the ground floor in the center of the building, or in a small room on the ground floor that is away from outside walls and windows. Stay away from windows to avoid flying debris. If you are outside and there isn't time to get into a building, take cover and lie

flat in the nearest depression, such as a ditch, culvert, excavation, or ravine. Avoid auditoriums and gymnasiums with large, poorly supported roofs. If you are in one of the all-wood buildings, evacuate to a safer location. If you are in an administrative or classroom building, go to an interior hallway on the lowest floor. Stay away from windows. Lockdown A lockdown may be preferable during situations such as the presence of a hostile or armed intruder inside a building.

A lockdown requires locking doors, windows, and barricading oneself to block entry to a campus facility, a classroom, or to an office compound. The following are general lockdown procedures: Lock or barricade classroom doors. Close windows and window treatments. Turn off the lights. Instruct everyone to remain silent and not to go into hallways. Crouch down in areas out of sight from doors and windows to conceal yourself as much as possible. If you are in hallways during the emergency, seek shelter immediately in the nearest classroom or office compound. If you are in outdoor areas, you should immediately take cover. Active Shooter Response: Response

If you are involved in a situation where someone has entered the area and started shooting, the following are a list of actions that are recommended. Exit the building immediately. Notify anyone you may encounter to exit the building immediately. If you are directly involved and exiting the building is not possible, the following actions are recommended: Go to the nearest room or office. Close and lock/barricade the door. Cover the door windows. Keep quiet and act as if no one is in the room. DO NOT answer the door. Defend, divert or attack. Be Careful About Decisions All situations will be DYNAMIC- decisions will be based on conditions where YOU are There is no one answer Plan ahead based on where you are: exits, shelter areas The shooter will not stop until his objectives have been met, unless engaged by law enforcement Consider the risk exposure created by opening the door Attempts to rescue people should only be made if that can be done without further endangering the persons inside a secured area The shooter may bang on the door and yell for help to entice you to open the door Remember the safety of the masses versus the safety of a few If there is any doubt to the safety of the individuals inside the room,

the area needs to remain secured Law Enforcement Response Law enforcement will immediately respond to the area It is important for you to convey to others that help is on the way. Remain inside the secure area. Law enforcements goal is to locate, contain, and stop the shooter, not treat the injured. The safest place for you to be is inside a secure room The shooter will not flee when law enforcement enters the building, instead he will have new targets to shoot Remember the shooters mindset is NOT escape. His goal is to kill and injure The police dont know if you are friend or foe! Keep hands visible Listen to commands and obey
