General Emergency Response Recommendations.
"First-day announcement" to be read to the students on the first
day of the class, to help explain the
Emergencies can happen anywhere and at any time, so it's
important that we take a minute to prepare for a situation in
which our safety could depend on our ability to react quickly.
Take a moment to learn the different ways to leave this building.
If there's ever a fire alarm or something like that, you'll know
how to get out and you'll be able to help others get out.
Next, figure out the best place to go in case of severe weather;
we'll need to go to a low-level in the middle of the building,
away from windows. And finally, if there's ever someone trying
to hurt us, our best option is to run out of the building.
If we cannot do that safely, we'll want to hide somewhere we can't be seen,
and we'll have to lock or barricade the door
if possible and be as quiet as we can.
We will not leave that safe area until we get an
Illini-Alert confirming that it's safe to do so.
If we can't run or hide, we'll fight back with whatever we
can get our hands on.
If you want to better prepare yourself for any of these situations,
Remember you can sign up for emergency text messages at emergency.illinois.edu.
