If the building is evacuated do not return to an evacuated building unless told to do so by
Emergency lighting in campus buildings is temporary and may not always provide sufficient
illumination in corridors and stairs for safe exiting. It is, therefore, advisable to have your own
flashlight available for emergencies.
Cease all operations. Do not switch on any lights or any electrical equipment. Notify Physical
Plant during normal business hours or University Police during nights, weekends, or holidays.
Natural Gas Leak
Cease all operations. A mild smell of natural gas is normal in some buildings due to venting of
boiler systems. If you witness a gas line rupture whether underground or in a building, evacuate
the building and notify University Police.
