"The Big 3" Protective Actions
For any hazard or emergency on campus, there are three key protective actions that you can take. They apply in so many different situations that we call them "The Big 3". Please take some time to become familiar with how to evacuate, shelter-in-place and secure-in-place. Your building's Emergency Response Coordinator may have more details for you, and you can always contact Emergency Management using the form below for more assistance.
If evacuation is needed, the key actions are to alert others, leave calmly but quickly, and know how and where to assemble.
Typically an alert in a weather-related emergency, the key actions are to shelter inside a building, above ground, and, if possible, away from windows. Pay attention to Campus Alerts.
Usually related to threats of violence, the key actions are to secure yourself behind a locked door or barricade and make your hiding place dark, quiet.
