Flooding

In case of imminent or actual flooding:

Flooding can occur because of major rainstorms, water main breaks or loss of power to sump pumps.

  1. If you can do so safely:
    • Secure vital equipment, records and hazardous materials by moving them to higher, safer ground.
    • Shut off all nonessential electrical equipment.
    • Wait for instructions from Public Safety Office or Facilities Operations.
  2. Move all personnel to a safe area, away from the building in danger. Locate people with special needs and provide assistance if possible. Otherwise, provide their location to emergency responders.
  3. Do not return to the building until instructed to do so by Public Safety Office or Facilities Operations.
  4. Call Facilities Operations for assistance with flood cleanup.
