In the event of an earthquake:
- Stay calm and stay put.
- IF INDOORS: Stay indoors unless you are in immediate personal danger. Take cover under a desk or table, or brace yourself in a doorway. Stay away from windows. Protect yourself from objects that can fall on you or items that might shatter.
- IF OUTDOORS: Move to an open area away from overhead hazards, like power lines or trees. Stay away from buildings, as bricks, glass or other objects might fall on you. Stay away from parking lots. Cars might be thrown into you by the force of the earthquake.
- AFTER AN EARTHQUAKE: If significant damage is evident, evacuate the building and go to the designated assembly area for your hall. Wear sturdy shoes to protect your feet from broken glass. Do not use the telephone unless it is an emergency. Listen to radio for news. Do not use the elevators due to possible damage or aftershocks. In the assembly area, check in with the Hall Coordinator (or wait until your name is called) and wait quietly for further instructions. There may be one or more aftershocks. Be prepared for them.
- Students: Do not leave campus without notifying residential life staff.
Employees: Do not leave campus without notifying your supervisor.
