Emergency Contacts and Procedures

    POLICY AND PROCEDURE MANUAL SECTION 6-78
FIRE, POLICE, AMBULANCE EMERGENCY DISPATCH: Dial 9, if on campus, than 911. Provide your name, location, phone number, and brief details of the emergency. CAMPUS SECURITY: Don Reid, Director of Campus Security - Ext. 7515, or 619-1145, 619-1146; night shift 619-1144. ST. GEORGE CITY: Police - 634-5000. Washington County Sheriff - 656-6500. FIRE: Attempt to extinguish only very small fires by using the building's fire extinguisher. Otherwise, clear the area by sounding the fire alarm. Follow building evacuation procedures. After leaving the building, call 911 immediately to report the fire and location. BOMB THREAT: In the case of a telephoned bomb threat, remain calm and courteous. Do not put the caller on hold or attempt to transfer the call. Listen first, then ask questions. Take careful notes. After hanging up, talk to no one other than Campus Security. If you find suspicious packages or boxes, DO NOT MOVE THEM, but contact Campus Security immediately. CHEMICAL SPILLS/LEAKS: Use the fire alarm to clear the building. Do not attempt to clean up a spill unless specially trained. Notify Hazardous Materials Specialist Dennis Cox at ext. 7555 or contact Campus Security. POISON CONTROL: Call 1-800-456-7707 EARTHQUAKE: During an earthquake, take refuge under a desk or in a solid framed doorway. Stay away from windows which shatter. After the quake stops, stay put. Secondary shockwaves may make hallways and exits hazardous. If the fire alarm sounds, proceed quickly to the nearest exit and follow fire evacuation procedures. ON-THE-JOB INJURIES: Report injuries to immediate supervisor. If necessary, call 9-911 for an ambulance and paramedics, or go to IHC WorkMed located at 385 N 3050 E, St. George, UT 84790. Notify the Human Resources Office and complete a workers compensation form. FIRE EVACUATION PROCEDURES:
  1. LEAVE WHEN THE ALARM SOUNDS, EVACUATE. The University does not have fire drills. When you hear the alarm, assume it is an emergency situation. All occupants of a building must proceed immediately to the nearest exit. DO NOT STOP TO GATHER BELONGINGS. DO NOT RISK YOUR LIFE BY STAYING IN THE BUILDING. In the event the alarm ceases, but no "all clear" notice is given, continue to evacuate.
  2. EVACUATE TO YOUR DESIGNATED ASSEMBLY POINT. All of a building’s occupants should gather at the designated assembly point (see reverse side), which must be at a distance of at least 1 ½ times the height of the building. Each building’s designated evacuation coordinator or alternate will maintain a list of regular building occupants and account for everyone upon exit. If someone is missing, do not reenter the building to search for him or her until the "all clear" notice is given, but immediately notify security or fire department personnel.
  3. REMAIN CALM. Danger is greatly reduced if you remain calm and clear thinking.
  4. KNOW YOUR EMERGENCY EXIT and alternate exits.
  5. PROCEED CAUTIOUSLY. Feel the door before opening it. If the door is hot, don’t open it, there is fire on the opposite side. If there is smoke and no fire nearby, crawl to the exit. The air is safer close to the floor.
  6. USE STAIRWAYS ONLY. Do not use the elevators, since they may malfunction or open onto a fire.
  7. NEVER ATTEMPT TO FIGHT A FIRE ALONE. If the fire is small, attempt to extinguish it with an available fire extinguisher. Know the location of the closest fire extinguisher. Generally, if the fire involves more than a waste basket, pull an alarm and evacuate immediately. Call "911" when you are out of the building.
  8. IF YOU BECOME TRAPPED, go to an external window for refuge. All doors around you should be closed and sealed tightly to prevent smoke penetration. Wait at the window, signal for help, and remain calm. If there is not smoke outside your window, break the window to exit, if safely possible, or to attract attention and call for help.
  9. EVACUATE INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES. Four persons should be assigned to assist the evacuation of individuals in wheel chairs. One person should be assigned to carry the empty wheel chair.
  10. EVACUATE EMPLOYEES AND STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS. Individualized evacuation plans should be developed for persons with special needs. Anyone desiring individualized plans should contact the Human Resources Director.
  11. ALL CURRENT AND NEW EMPLOYEES SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY ORIENTED ON EVACUATION PROCEDURES.
