Public Safety

Explosion or Plane Crash

Emergency Contacts

  • Department of Public Safety 9111
  • If Public Safety cannot be reached 911

In the event a mishap occurs such as an explosion or a downed aircraft (crash) on campus, take the following action:

  1. Immediately take cover under tables, desks and other objects, which will give protection against falling glass or debris.
  2. After the effects of the explosion and/or fire have subsided notify the Frankenlust Fire Department (Emergency 911 and the Department of Public Safety 9111).
  3. If necessary, or when directed to do so, activate the building alarm. Caution: The building alarm may ring only in some buildings — you may have to report the emergency by telephone or other means.
  4. When the building evacuation alarm is sounded or when told to leave by College officials walk quickly to the nearest marked exit and ask others to do the same.
  5. Assist the handicapped in exiting the building. Remember that elevators are reserved for handicapped persons. Do not use elevators in case of fire. DO NOT panic.
  6. Once outside move to a clear area that is at least 500 feet away from the building. Keep streets and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and crews. Know your area assembly points.
  7. If requested, assist emergency crews as necessary.
  8. A Campus Emergency Command Post may be set up near the disaster site. Keep clear of the Command Post unless you have official business.
  9. Do not return to an evacuated building unless told to do so by a College official.
