Upon discovering a fire, smoke, or an explosion in the building, stay calm and activate the nearest fire alarm pull station.
Call Campus Safety at 276-944-6222 and be prepared to give information on location, size, and cause of the fire, as well as any injuries.
Follow posted building evacuation routes and account for all occupants of the room. Campus policy dictates that everyone must leave immediately when a fire alarm is activated, even if there are no obvious signs of an emergency.
Do not use elevators as electrical power may be cut off.
Remain Calm and assist others in safely getting out
Confine the fire by closing all doors and windows if possible.
Follow directions given by emergency personnel and go to the location designated by your building coordinator.
If trapped in a room retreat and close as many doors as possible between you and the fire. Place cloth material around and under the door to stop smoke from coming in, Signal from windows and use phones/cell phones to advise Campus Safety of your location.
If forced to travel through the smoke, stay low, and breathe shallowly, using a shirt or jacket as a filter. Before opening any door, check first to see if it is hot to the touch; if the door feels hot do not open it. Never re-enter the building once you have evacuated it until instructed to do so by the fire department or Campus Safety.
Remain calm, do not engage the intruder.
A quick and quiet escape is suggested, if it can be done safely.
If attempting to escape, keep your hands elevated with open palms visible, especially if encountering law enforcement officers. Follow all instructions given.
If you cannot safely exit the building, seek secure shelter.
Close and lock windows, lower blinds, remain out of sight, and turn off the lights.
Once secured, take cover behind concrete walls, thick desks, and filing cabinets that are away from windows and doors.
Remain quiet and turn off cell phone ringers.
Tornado or Severe Weather
Listen for the siren. A single siren blast will sound to alert you to check for emergency message via email and the Campus Alert System.
Seek shelter inside a building until notified by College officials that it is safe to leave.
An “all-clear” e-alert will be sent when the danger has passed.
