The purpose of emergency procedures is to facilitate and organize student, faculty, and staff actions during emergencies.
Emergency plans, notification systems, and proper training will result in fewer injuries and less structural damage to the university during emergencies.
All faculty, staff, and students should familiarize themselves with the university's general emergency procedures. They are posted in all ETSU buildings. These procedures give students, faculty, and staff specific information about what to do in the event of fire, severe weather, power outages, and hazardous material releases. The posting also provides specific procedures to follow for building evacuation and response to the campus emergency notification system. The example above are posted emergency procedures from Burgin E Dossett Hall.
