At the beginning of the first class meeting, the instructor is to review the emergency procedures with students and indicate the intended shortest route to the evacuation site. (The evacuation route taken may depend on the type and extent of the emergency). ELEVATORS SHOULD NOT BE USED. Identify any students who may require special assistance in an emergency and discuss evacuation individually with them to develop a plan.
Evacuation is not always the safest course of action. If an emergency occurs, please keep students in your classroom until directed to evacuate by emergency personnel unless it becomes obvious that remaining in the building jeopardizes the safety of you and your students. In the event that evacuation from the building is required, Faculty provide valuable leadership in safely and efficiently evacuating students.
If an evacuation is required:
NOTE: Building Marshals and Floor Captains from the College of Science Emergency Team can be identified by their orange vests.
Emergency personnel and advise your students to do the same. Evacuation routes off campus are pre-designated based on where you are parked. Pre-designated routes are also posted on the “Emergency Information” section of Polycentric. Please note that routes may be adjusted depending on the emergency situation.
The Building 4 evacuation site is between the rain forest greenhouse and Building 4 on the grassy area (west side of Building 4).
The Buildings 3 & 8 evacuation site is on the grassy area in front of the Deans office and away from the Building (east side of Building)
For the new portables behind the music building the primary evacuation site is on the cement patio area in front of the music building. Evacuees will then be directed to the grassy area next to the campus center. Emergency team members will be wearing an orange vest.
In the event of an emergency requiring evacuation during after-hours class time, the instructor is responsible for evacuating all students to the designated evacuation site. At the beginning of the first class meeting, the instructor is to review the emergency procedures with students and go over the intended shortest evacuation route to the evacuation site Note: The evacuation route taken may depend on the type and extent of the emergency. ELEVATORS SHOULD NOT BE USED. Identify any students who may require special assistance in an emergency and discuss evacuation individually with them to develop a plan. Inform all students that in an event of an emergency evacuation they should take all personal belongings with them, IF TIME PERMITS, because they may not be able to re-enter the building.
The following steps are to be taken in an emergency situation.
For a medical emergency:
If the injury requires more assistance than minor first aid, check to see if a cellular phone is available in the classroom. If there is, use it to contact university police at (909) 869-3070 or dial 911 from the nearest university telephone. (Do not dial 9-1-1 on a cellular phone. Those calls are routed to the California Highway Patrol and will delay response time.) The university has an ambulance on campus that can be dispatched by the university police.
When you or a designated caller Dial 911, stay on the line until told it is okay to disconnect, and be prepared to give the following information:
Sheltering in Place is a protective action taken inside a building to protect the building occupants from external hazards, minimize the chance of injury and/or provide the time necessary to allow for a safe evacuation. Circumstances that may warrant a shelter-in-place activity could include:
|Sever Weather||Biological incident||Active Shooter|
|Civil unrest||Radiological incident||Accidental chemical exposure|
Practice general safety precautions at all times. If you observe any suspicious activity on campus, immediately contact University Police at 9-1-1 or (909) 869-3070.
The notice to Shelter-In-Place will be issued by emergency personnel from University Police or the Emergency Operations Center and can be received in many ways.
