Hazardous Material Incident

The University Notification System will advise you if a hazardous material release (asbestos, chemical agents, chemical weapons or biological weapons, etc.) occurs outside or near the campus. If conditions require an immediate evacuation from the building, you will be instructed to go to the Primary Evacuation Site or another assembly point. If conditions require everyone to remain inside the building you should:

  1. Close and seal all exterior doors and windows.
  2. Shut off any personal outside air system such as a window air conditioner.
  3. Remain in the building until advised of further action by DPS, D.C. Police or Fire Department personnel, or HAZMAT personnel.
