Utility Failure

In the event of a major utility failure during regular business hours, notify Campus Services at 878-6111. Before 7:00 AM and after 4:30 PM or on weekends and holidays, notify University Police at 878-6333.

Evacuate the building if the fire alarm sounds and/or upon notification by University Police (see "General Evacuation Procedures" above).

A major power outage may not in itself be destructive, but a possible resulting panic or fire could endanger life and property. Panic can be partially avoided by an immediate decision on the need to cancel classes or meetings in progress or to evacuate the building (see "General Evacuation Procedures" above).

In laboratory buildings, fume hoods do not operate during a power outage and most laboratories should not be used until the ventilation is properly restored.
