Earthquake Procedure

  • Stay where you are, most injuries occur when people try to enter or exit a
    building during an earthquake.
  • If indoors, take cover under a sturdy object or in a hallway.
  • Stay away from windows or bookshelves, watch for falling objects from desk or
    overhead storage.
  • If outside, move away from building and utility poles and lines.
  • If you’re driving, stop quickly and safely but do not exit vehicle.

Hazardous materials come in the form of explosives, chemicals, flammable and
combustible substances, and radioactive materials. These are often released due
to a chemical accident or transportation accident.

Be Prepared:

  • Review SCC Safety Plan Section IV. B
  • Know how to store and dispose of chemicals
  • Learn the meaning of labels on chemicals and hazardous substances
  • Find out how hazardous chemicals are handled, stored, and transported
  • Know where to find MSDS sheets on each substance

In the event of a spill:

  • Evacuate all persons from area
  • Avoid breathing vapors (Cover nose and mouth)
  • Determine if spill is life threatening

  • If flammable, turn off ignition and heat sources
  • Secure proper supplies for clean up if minor
  • Wear appropriate apparel during clean up
  • Notify 911 immediately followed by the names on the “Emergency Contact List”.
  • Do not attempt to move a person who is ill or injured unless they are in immediate danger of further injury.
  • Unless certified to provide first aid, do not attempt to render any first aid before trained assistance arrives.
  • Use personal protective equipment (gloves) when exposing yourself to bodily fluids (e.g. vomit, blood, etc.).
  • Comfort the victim and reassure them that medical attention is on the way.
  • If necessary, implement appropriate emergency procedure (e.g. Evacuation) to ensure that students, faculty, or staff are not exposed to trauma or danger.
  • Remain calm and reassure students, faculty, and staff that all possible actions are being taken to care for the injured or ill person and to protect others.
  • After the victim’s immediate needs have been taken care of, remain to assist medical services with pertinent information about the incident.
  • Preserve the scene in the event the incident will require an investigation by school or police officials.
  • Teachers, rejoin your students as soon as possible. Take your student roster with you and account for all students once you have reached a designated area.

Hostile situations should be reported immediately to 911 and SNAP (16911). These situations will require the assistance of outside emergency responders as well as efforts from Campus Security, M&O and other college personnel.

  • Secure the area (building or buildings) and make sure the area is safe.
  • All emergencies must be reported first to 911 and then to the SNAP (16911).
  • If you are in immediate danger seek cover, do not try to be a hero.
  • If you are outdoors, alert others to take immediate cover. Do not move
    from a safe location if you are protected from gun fire. Head to closest,
    safe building only if you can do so without exposing yourself to gun
    fire.
  • If you are in a building stay in a secure area, lock all doors in your area.
  • Try to keep individuals in your area calm.
  • Do not leave a safe area until told to do so by the appropriate authority.
  • Keep others away from windows and doors.
  • Be ready to guide emergency services if needed.
  • Key is to act quickly, safely, and wait for the all clear from appropriate authority.

If you are not in immediate danger, stay away from the area of the incident.

Each building on all campuses and centers has a designated tornado
shelter area that is clearly marked.

  • In the event of a tornado you will be instructed to go to the nearest
    shelter and wait there for the all clear from authorized personnel.
  • It is not recommended that a person leave the campus during a tornado
    warning.
  • Stay away from windows, doors and exterior walls.
  • Do not stay in a vehicle during a tornado warning.
  • Remember a tornado “watch” means that conditions are favorable for
    a tornado, a tornado “warning” means that a tornado has been spotted
    in the area.
