  • Check for injuries, but do not attempt to move any serious injured people unless there is a greater danger by not doing so.
  • Use telephones to report emergencies (i.e. gas leaks, fire, or injuries).
  • Only Facilities Services or other trained individuals should attempt to turn utilities on or off.
  • Never touch downed utility poles or lines. Do not approach damaged building equipment.
