Facilitate the appropriate response (e.g., Evacuation, Lockdown, Shelter-in-Place).
Provide assistance to injured/disabled individuals when possible.
If you are called back to campus, return to campus as soon as possible.
Assume your emergency response role (e.g., Floor Building Coordinator, Area Building Coordinator, Building Coordinator, etc.) if you have one.
Check in with Department Head and Floor/Area Building Coordinator. Report any missing personnel.
Follow directions given by First Responders.
In the event of a civil disturbance or demonstration that is not registered, blocks access to UAF facilities or interferes with campus operations, do not intervene. Lock doors and windows, secure vital research and continue with your normal routine unless otherwise instructed by UAF Police Department.
