EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES:
- Dial 911 from any public or campus telephone.
- Over 200 Emergency Telephone System (ETS)
- For assistance push the ETS button which will connect you to the Purdue Police Department
- Immediate warning notifications focuses on two basic concepts:
- Fire Alarms mean to immediately evacuate the building and proceed to your Emergency Assembly Area (should be specified in the Building Emergency Plan).
- All Hazards Outdoors Emergency Warning Sirens means to immediately seek shelter (Shelter In Place) in a safe location within closest facility/building.
- "Shelter in place" means seeking immediate shelter inside a building or University residence. This course of action may need to be taken during a tornado, earthquake, release of hazardous materials in the outside air, or a civil disturbance. When you hear the sirens immediately go inside a building to a safe location and use all communication means available to find out more details about the emergency. Remain in place until police, fire, or other emergency response personnel provide additional guidance or tell you it is safe to leave.
In both cases, you should seek additional clarifying information by all means possible (Purdue Home page, email alert, TV, radio, etc.) Review the Purdue Emergency Warning Notification System multi-communication layers.
EMERGENCY RESPONSE PROCEDURES:
- Purdue's Emergency Procedures Guide should be periodically reviewed and referenced for all emergencies.
- Be familiar with the Building Emergency Plan (each building is required to have a BEP) for:
- evacuation routes, exit points, and location to report for roll call after evacuating the building.
- when and how to evacuate the building.
- shelter in place procedures and locations
- additional building specific procedures and requirements.
