Departmental Emergency Communication Plan

The following is our Department’s plan to communicate information rapidly to people within our facilities.

If you observe a fire or detect smoke, trigger the fire alarm. If you encounter an emergency situation that requires paramedics or police, please contact the appropriate authorities (911), then contact one of the following people in the main office: Mesia Miller (5-1644), Adell Hopper (5-4322), Michelle Kelley (5-4321), Dorian Small (5-2481).

During Office Hours

Once personnel in the Main Office are made aware of an emergency situation requiring everyone in the building to respond, the following will occur:

Mesia (or available staff) will email the faculty.  Faculty will then notify their floor’s classrooms/students as needed. Mesia will email the staff (including Greenhouse, EM Lab, and Stephenson RTC). Michelle will notify classrooms on the first floor.  Adell will email the graduate assistants.  If one or more office staff are not available, faculty will be emailed first, then staff, then GAs by whichever office staff is available.  

Non-Office Hours

If you observe a fire or detect smoke, trigger the fire alarm. If you encounter an emergency situation that requires paramedics or police, please contact the appropriate authorities (911). Then, contact Dr. Dunn or Mesia via phone. If you observe any other problems with the building that require immediate attention (e.g., water leaks, heating or cooling issues, damage to the building, unlocked doors), please send a GLCH Building Maintenance Request Form.
