Explosion, Plane Crash, or Similar Alarm

If there is an explosion or a downed aircraft (crash) on campus, take the following actions:

  • Immediately take cover under tables, desks, and other objects which will give protection against falling glass or debris.
  • After the effects of the explosion and/or fire have subsided, notify Campus Safety. Give your name and describe the location and nature of the emergency.
  • Activate the building alarm.
  • When the building alarm is sounded or when instructed to leave by police, fire, or College officials, walk quickly to the nearest marked exit and ask others to do the same.
