building evacuees to canvas the building for any remaining personnel on the

8. Complete the Building Emergency Status Report (Attachment 3) and if the
emergency is minor or localized then wait for the first responders to arrive to
report the building status and roster information. If a major, widespread
emergency where first responders do not arrive, call the Emergency
Operations Center at extension 4742 (408-554-4742). If telephone service is

IN A MAJOR EMERGENCY, IT IS EXPECTED THAT ALL THOSE WHO DO NOT
HAVE A DEFINED EMERGENCY RESPONSE ROLE AND ARE ABLE TO LEAVE
CAMPUS, WILL GO HOME. Before leaving the campus, faculty and staff will be
expected to report to their respective departments (resident students report to their
Residence Halls and non-resident students report to the Leavey Event Center to sign
out). By reporting before leaving, it provides the departments with a record of who
has left and who is still on campus for emergency contact purposes. If unable to
leave campus, students, faculty and staff should be instructed to report to the Leavey
Event Center to register for shelter.
Those who have had HEAT/CERT, First Aid, or other training that would be
beneficial in an emergency are encouraged to volunteer to support the campus
emergency response efforts. Volunteers may assist in support duties such as care
and shelter services, messaging, traffic direction and crowd control. Those wishing
to volunteer should be informed to report to the Benson Center for assignment.
