Other major disaster or explosion

In the event of a violent accident such as an airplane crash or explosion, take the following actions:

  • Immediately take cover under tables, desks or other such objects providing protection against flying glass and debris.
  • When it is safe to do so, notify the campus police on any campus phone by dialing 9-1-1. When using a cell phone, dial (909) 869-3070. Give your name, the location and the nature of the emergency.
  • If the emergency threatens those in the building, contact your building marshal, or if directed to do so by emergency personnel, activate the building alarm system.
  • Assist the disabled, and if there is an immediate hazard, assist injured persons in evacuating the building.
  • Once outside, move to your pre-designated evacuation area or clear area at least 150 feet away from the affected building. Keep walkways clear for emergency vehicles.
  • Do not return to a building until emergency personnel tell you to do so.
