Emergency Guide - Utility Failure

If a power interruption occurs:

  1. Remain calm
  2. Turn off any unnecessary appliances, computers, office equipment, tools, etc.  Leave lights on as an indicator of the return of power.
  3. Provide assistance to individuals not familiar with the area.
  4. Remain inside and in the immediate area.  Evacuate only if told by authorities to do so.
  5. During an extended power outage, call Facilities at 755-4700 for a status report.

Many campus buildings are equipped with backup power (generator power), which will either completely or partially restore power to the buildings.
