Shelter in Place

In Office Spaces:

Ensure office doors are lockable. Employees are encouraged to lock office doors during emergencies.

In Classrooms:

Faculty members should ensure that classroom doors are shut and locked during emergencies. If doors are not already locked by default, it is essential to secure them.

Limiting Movement:

Movement should be restricted within reason. Avoid unnecessary movements, particularly in areas with potential risks.

For Students in Common Areas:

Students are advised to stay in common areas during emergencies and limit movement. Moving unnecessarily could potentially put individuals in harm's way.

Exterior Doors:

Exterior doors are not locked during emergencies to facilitate law enforcement or response teams' access.

Encouragement to Limit Movement:

All individuals are encouraged to limit movement during emergencies. However, it is recognized that complete restriction or restraint may not be feasible.

Safe Location Indoors:

Find a safe indoor location during emergencies and remain there, limiting movement, until receiving the "all clear" signal or instructions to evacuate.

These guidelines aim to promote safety and reduce risks during emergency situations. It is essential for all individuals to adhere to these protocols for their well-being and the safety of others.
