Explosion on Campus or Downed Aircraft

In the event of an explosion or downed aircraft (crash) on campus:

  • Immediately take cover under tables, desks and other objects, which will give protection from falling glass or debris.

  • After the effect of the explosion and/or fire has subsided, notify the IUPD at extension 363. Give your name and describe the location and nature of the emergency. The IUPD will notify the Kokomo Fire Department and the other necessary agencies.

  • If necessary, or when directed to do so, activate the fire alarm and contact IUPD at extension 363.

  • When the fire alarm is sounded, or when told to leave by IUPD or Physical Plant emergency staff, walk quickly to the nearest marked exit and ask others to do the same.

  • Assist the disabled in exiting the building! Remember that elevators are reserved for disabled persons. Do not use elevators in case of fire.

  • Once outside, move to a clear area that is at least 500 feet away from the affected building. Keep streets and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and crews.

  • If requested, assist emergency crews as necessary.

  • A campus Emergency Command Post may be set up near the disaster site. Keep clear of the command post unless you have official business.

  • If an incident command center is established, a representative from Physical Plant will report to the incident commander to help facilitate with any questions from the emergency response teams.

  • Do not return to an evacuated building unless told to do so by a university official.

What matters. Where it matters.
