At the rally point, an accounting of employees will be taken by the most senior of the staff available.  If people cannot be accounted for, inform the Emergency Responders. 


Reporting medical emergencies:

In the event that you are injured, come upon an injured person, or encounter what you suspect to be blood or other bodily fluids, you shall:

  • Call 911 and inform them what has happened.
  • Call Campus Security at 621-3400 for assistance.
  • If the victim is other than yourself, administer first aid only if you are currently certified and are using the proper personal protective equipment.
  • If the situation involves suspected blood or other bodily fluids and no victim, still call Campus Security at 621-3400.  Keep people away from the suspected bodily fluid.  (DO NOT attempt a clean-up on your own.)


Use of Emergency Equipment:

Although it is policy to evacuate in case of a fire, circumstances may dictate that a fire extinguisher is needed. 

DO NOT use a fire extinguisher unless you:

  •          have been trained in the hands-on use of an extinguisher within the last three years.
  •          are able to put out the fire without endangering yourself or others.
  •          have an open path of escape at all times


Employees authorized to remain behind to operate or shut down critical operations: 




  • Periodic safety audits will be conducted by the employees and safety coordinator reducing the risks of hazards within the work spaces.

  • Once the emergency situation has been mitigated, an incident investigation will be completed, and corrective measures will be implemented to prevent future recurrence of the problem. 

  • If an injury is involved then file a first report of injury with Human Resources.


Implementation and Maintenance:

  • This plan will be reviewed, trained, and exercised when the plan is first implemented, whenever a new employee is hired, when changes necessitate, or at least once a year.  The training will consist of:
    •    providing a copy of the Emergency Action Plan and evacuation map to the employee;
    •    explaining procedures;
    •    walking through an evacuation; and
    •    answering any questions the employee has.
  • Evacuation drills will also be conducted. 
  • The person(s) responsible for updating and training this Emergency Action Plan is Rob Marden.  He can be reached at 621-3103
