FOLLOW These Directions…In Case of an Emergency OnCampus
Fire alarm systems are installed in all university buildings on the ISU Campus. The fire alarm systems for a number buildings on campus are monitored 24/7 by ISU Public Safety.
If you notice fire, smoke, or any evidence of fire, activate the building fire alarm. Call 911 to give the location and description of the fire. Call 2515 to report the location to ISU Public Safety.
Attempt rescue efforts only if there is no immediate danger to yourself.
Close all doors and windows in the vicinity of the fire.
When a fire alarm sounds go to the nearest exit and leave the building. The Building Coordinator/Floor Monitor and ISU Public Safety will assist you. In buildings where no alarm systems exist, the Building Coordinator will start the evacuation.
DO NOT USE THE ELEVATORS.
Once outside, proceed to the designated gathering point at least 500 feet away from the affected building. Stay there.
Immediately notify emergency personnel of any injured persons and individuals remaining in the affected building.
Do not return to an evacuated building unless told to do so by emergency personnel.
Listen for National Weather Service warnings on radio/television or call Public Safety at extension 2515.During a Severe Storm

Active Shooter Safety Tips:
During a lock-down faculty, staff and students should ensure that:
□Students and faculty are to remain in their classrooms. Do Not answer the door.
□ Keep back from any windows and doors, lay flat on the floor or seek protective cover for yourself and others (concrete walls, thick desks, filing cabinets. Cover may protect you from bullets).
□ Remain calm and assist others with you in remaining calm, quiet and out of sight.
□ Place signs in exterior windows to identify the location of injured persons.
□ All doors, windows, and classrooms will be closed and locked or barricaded, if possible.
□ Turn off all lights and close blinds.
□ Silence all cell phones.
□ Once in a lockdown area, building occupants should call 911 or Public Safety at 282-2515 and give the dispatchers the phone number(s) at which they can be reached for further instructions.
□ If you cannot get through by phone and have e-mail or text message capability, contact Public Safety at [email protected] Public Safety Dispatch will immediately receive and respond to the message.
□ Account for everyone in the room or office.
□ Do Not Approach EmergencyResponders - let them come to you.
□ Building occupants should remain in that area until they receive further instructions or an “all clear” is issued.
□ No one will be allowed to enter or leave the building(s) or area(s).
□ Parents, friends, concerned loved ones will not be allowed to pickup faculty, staff or students from the university, unless instructed to do so.
Public Safety officers and otheremergency responders will remain near outside entrances, if possible without putting themselves in danger, to discourage others from entering the building(s) until proper authorities have issued an “all clear.”

Evacuation may not be necessary or advisable. If persons with disabilities cannot be transported from the building without using an elevator, assist persons with disabilities to the designated "Persons With Disabilities Rescue Area" on each floor of the building. Never use an elevator in a fire or earthquake. Be prepared to notify rescue personnel immediately upon their arrival of the location of any persons with disabilities in such rescue areas. Use buddy system if possible. If immediate evacuation is necessary, be aware of the following considerations:
Visually Impaired Persons:
Most visually impaired persons will be familiar with their immediate surroundings. In an emergency situation:
Hearing Impaired Persons:
Because persons with impaired hearing may not perceive emergency alarms, an alternative warning technique is required. Two methods of warning:
During certain emergency situations, particularly chemical, biological or radioactive material releases and some weather emergencies, you may be advised to "shelter in place" rather than evacuate the building.
Make sure you have an Evacuation Plan for Home and School which includes:
- One location just outside where you live/work
- A second location further away in case you can’t get close to where you live/work
- Everyone should know where it is
Make sure you have an Emergency Communication Plan with family and friends:
Have pets? Develop a Pet Emergency Plan to include emergency supplies and emergency shelter. Pets are not allowed in public emergency shelters for health reasons.
These are basic items to allow you to endure an emergency situation for a period of time:
Be aware of what is going on around you and report any unusual activity to ISU Public Safety.
Know what hazards can occur in your area and know what you should do if they occur, and where to go.
Attend safety and security information sessions & classes.
Update your contact information with Registration & Records.
Program a family member or close friend into your cell phone using ICE (In Case of Emergency) in the name field. Emergency responders could use this to contact someone you designate if you are incapacitated.
Develop an emergency communication plan with family & friends
Know where to get official information:
ISU’s website at www.isu.edu
ISU Public Safety emergency line at 208-282-3936
Learn CPR and first aid. It might just save a life, including your own.
Develop an emergency supply kit.

Here at Idaho State University, the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff - as well as the university's campus in general - is our mission.
The Public Safety Department has the primary responsibility for maintaining a safe and secure environment at Idaho State University.
The Department seeks to promote mutual cooperation and conflict resolution by establishing a positive social atmosphere where effective learning can take place.
However, we must also help individuals in our community learn how to make responsible decisions that will prepare them for the hazards they may face in our world today and tomorrow.
With that in mind, we encourage you to learn about and utilize the additional resources and services shown on the next few pages, to help you stay safe.
