Campus Evacuation

    Campus Evacuation

    Evacuation of all or part of the campus grounds will be announced by Public Safety in consultation with the CIRT.


    • Public Safety will coordinate with the on-scene incident commander (the public official overseeing the event, from the following: Bexley Police Department, Franklin County Sheriff, Franklin County Emergency Management Agency, Red Cross).If evacuation requires an overnight situation, alternate housing will need to be arranged.
    • University vehicles may be utilized for evacuation including motor pool vans, fleet vehicles and physical plant vehicles. Since approximately 1,200 students have vehicles, personal vehicles may be needed for transportation.
    • Evacuees should be moved to a staging area, where a headcount and accounting for all building occupants will take place.
    • Do not return to an evacuated building unless told to do so by an authorized official.
