Basic employee response plan

Each department has an area-specific plan detailing alarm systems, major hazards, exit routes, rally points and specific responsibilities. Contact your supervisor for a copy of your plan.

Upon the sounding of the alarm or detection of an emergency that requires evacuation.

Alert others
If you are the person that detects the emergency, verbally warn others in the area, activate the evacuation alarm system, and call the police department from a safe place — 911 from a campus phone or 581.4040 from your cellphone.

Rally point
Evacuate to your department designated rally point and stay there until released by your supervisor.

Use of emergency equipment
It is policy to evacuate the building immediately in case of a fire or other emergency. Only those people who are specifically trained may use emergency equipment.
