Emergency Procedures Training For Simpson University Employees Last Updated Oct. 31, 2012 This Presentation will provide you with procedures and information concerning potential emergency situations on the Simpson University campus.
SU Emergency Procedures• Emergency procedures compiled within this presentation can also be found in the Emergency Preparedness Flip Chart and the evacuation plans located in each campus building.• Sample pages shown below:
Fire EmergencyFire alarm systems are installed in university buildings. The systemsare monitored by SU Campus Safety and a local safety company. FIRE• If you notice fire, smoke, or any evidence of fire, activate the building fire alarm. Call Campus Safety at extension 2911 to report the location. Call 911 to give the location and description of the fire.• Close all doors and windows in the vicinity of the fire.• When a fire alarm sounds, leave the building through the nearest exit. Your supervisor and Campus Safety will assist you.• DO NOT USE THE ELEVATORS.• Once outside, proceed to the designated gathering point listed on the Emergency Procedure Flip Chart. Stay there. Immediately notify emergency personnel of any injured persons and individuals remaining in the affected building.• Do not return to an evacuated building unless told to do so by emergency personnel.
EarthquakesIn the Event of an Earthquake: 1. When shaking is felt: • Get under desk, table, door arch or stairwell. • Stay away from large windows, shelving systems or tall partitions. 1. After shaking stops: • Survey your immediate area for trapped persons and ruptured utilities. • Evacuate to your designated assembly area. • Inform your supervisor or Campus Safety at extension 2911 of any damage.
Weather Emergency• Weather emergencies may occur in the form of floods, tornadoes, thunderstorms, heavy snow, hail, or lightning. The most important factor when dealing with severe weather is early detection. The university will notify the campus community via email, news broadcasts, by calling 1- 888-SIMPSON and/or by posting on the Simpson University home page if operations will be suspended due to inclement weather.• If operations are suspended after the beginning of a regular business day, the administration may decide to close the university early. When such determination is made, you will be notified through the proper channels.
Hostile IntruderActive Shooter Safety Tips• Remain calm.• If it is possible to flee the area safely, do so. Notify anyone you may encounter to exit the building immediately. Evacuate to a safe area away from the danger and take protective cover. Stay there until assistance arrives. Otherwise: • Call 911 (on campus phone 9-911) and campus safety (530-941-7592) with your location, if possible. • If you cannot get through by phone and have email or text message capability, email Campus Safety at firstname.lastname@example.org. Campus Safety will immediately receive and respond to the message. • Seek protective cover for yourself and any others (concrete walls, thick desks, etc.) Keep occupants calm, quiet and out of sight. Mute or turn off cell phone ringers. • Lock all doors and windows to your classroom. • Do not admit anyone into the classroom once the door is locked. • Do not leave the classroom, unless no longer safe to remain. • Do Not approach emergency responders-let them come to you. • Stay in lockdown until an administrator gives the “all clear” signal.

Safety Whistle Program• Whistles are made available to all students and employees. Any member of the Simpson community who would like to participate should contact the Campus Safety office in the Owen Center. We encourage the use of these whistles both as a deterrent to any potential criminal activity and as a means of drawing maximum attention in the event of an emergency.• If you hear a whistle: • Call Campus Safety. Report location and nature of trouble. • Blow your whistle. • Move carefully toward the first whistle, and (keeping a safe distance) continue blowing. • Render first aid to the person soliciting help. • Call 911 for assistance (9-911 if calling from a campus phone). • Remember: These whistles are for emergency use only. Misuse will result in a heavy fine.
Individual Responsibility• Here at Simpson University, the safety and security for our students, faculty and staff- as well as the university’s campus in general- is our mission.• The Campus Safety Department has the primary responsibility for maintaining a safe and secure environment at Simpson University.• The department seeks to promote mutual cooperation and conflict resolution by establishing a positive social atmosphere where effective learning can take place.• However, we must also help individuals in our community to learn how to make responsible decisions that will prepare them for the hazards they may face in our world today and tomorrow.• With that in mind, we encourage you to learn about and utilize the additional resources and services shown on the next page, to help you stay safe.
