Emergency Procedures Training For Faculty, Staff and Students This presentation will provide you with information, procedures and information when an emergency happens on the ISU Campus.
ISU Emergency Procedures Emergency Information posters can also be found on each floor in each campus building to help provide immediate guidance in the event of an emergency, including evacuation procedures. Take time to find out who your Bldg. Coordinator is. Please make sure you follow these basic guidelines and refer to the University’s emergency Response Plan for more specific procedures. Emergency procedures have been compiled on this poster and can be downloaded and printed from the Public Safety web page at:
Fire Emergency FIRE 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. 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.
Weather Emergency Listen for National Weather Service warnings on radio/television or call Public Safety at extension During a Severe Storm During a cloudburst there is a possibility of flash flooding. Consult the ISU Emergency Response Plan's section on Flooding (9.11.1). During a Tornado Stay away from windows. Stay near inside wall when possible. Open doors/windows on the side away from the tornado to help reduce damage to the building. Keep calm. Even though a warning is issued, the chance of a tornado striking your building or location is very slight. During a Winter Storm Should conditions worsen during the day, the administration may decide to close the University early. When such determination is made, you will be notified through the proper channels. If roads leading to your home have been closed, do not attempt to travel home. If you are unable to travel home, contact your supervisor, or the person next in authority. Your supervisor will notify Disaster Personnel of and arrangements for sleeping will be made. Contact Public Safety at extension 2515 for building shutdown instructions and assistance. Consult the Emergency Response Plan’s section on Sheltering In Place (Section 8.5). ISU’s Snow Closure Policy When a decision is made to close the university, a message will be posted on the snow closure line (x3936) for both the Pocatello and Idaho Falls campuses. Local radio and television stations will also be notified. An additional notice will be posted on the ISU homepage and on the ISU Public Safety web page. For information specific to the Idaho Falls campus, call x7825.
Hostile Intruder Active Shooter Safety Tips: Try to remain calm. If it is possible to flee the area safely, do so. Notify anyone you may encounter to exit the building immediately. Evacuate to a safe area away from the danger and take protective cover. Stay there until assistance arrives. Otherwise; Call 911 and Public Safety ( ) with your location, if possible. If you cannot get through by phone and have or text message capability, Public Safety at Public Safety Dispatch will immediately receive and respond to the If flight is impossible, secure yourself in your space. Close, lock and barricade doors and windows. Turn off all the lights. Turn off radios and computer monitors. Seek protective cover for yourself and any others (concrete walls, thick desks, etc.) Keep occupants calm, quiet and out of sight. Mute or turn off cell phone ringers. Do Not answer the door. If possible, place signs in exterior windows to identify the location of injured persons. Do Not Approach Emergency Responders - let them come to you. Remain where you are until an “all clear” instruction is given. If faculty, staff or students do not recognize the voice that is giving instructions, they should stay put. Unknown or unfamiliar voices may be false and designed to give false assurances.

Emergency Notification Procedures In case of emergency ISU will use a variety of ways to communicate with the ISU Community. Notification will be initiated by senior university officials and implemented by Public Safety using the following methods: By reverse 911 by phone tree by by University homepage and the Public Safety Homepage by the university closure phone line by using staff to make physical contact at each building by vehicle and handheld public address systems by the SUB Clock Tower Public Address System by using KISU radio (Station 91.1am) by using public and private television stations by using the ISU campus information radio station (station 1610 am) After hours notification will be initiated by Public Safety using the above-mentioned methods.
Individual Responsibility 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 to 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.
