If the building is to be evacuated, the Security Office will conduct the evacuation. The fire alarm and voice announcements may be used for this purpose. The university personnel should immediately leave the building. Faculty and other employees who are conducting classes or otherwise have students or visitors in their area should ensure those persons leave as well.
If the building is evacuated, the public will be moved a safe distance from the building perimeter.

Building entrances will be secured against re-entry by positioning officers, signage, or barricade tape as appropriate and available. University staff will assist the Security Office where possible in ensuring that a complete evacuation was conducted, and in preventing re-entry to the building by students and visitors. Note: These procedures are the same in case of a fire.
No radio transmissions will be made within fifty feet of the area or building involved. Radio transmission may cause an improvised explosive device to detonate.
Cellular phones will be turned off before approaching within fifty feet of the area or building involved. Cellular phones that are turned on transmit periodically even when a call is not in progress.
