For CU Denver faculty, staff and students who work in or attend classes in the CU Building (Dravo) at 1250 14th Street and the Lawrence Street Center, 1380 Lawrence Street, please note:

Our telecommunications team is working directly with the departments and individuals whose phone numbers are changing.
 
The new 315-phone numbers will offer the convenience of five-digit calling within the entire CU Denver l Anschutz Medical Campus system. A recorded message informs callers of the phone number change and directing the caller to the new 315 extension.

Thursday, July 26, 2012; 10:16 a.m.
Dear students, faculty and staff,                                                                                           
This has been a difficult and trying week for all of us. Apart from the sadness we all feel for the victims, the aftermath of Friday’s Aurora movie theater shooting, with the suspect a former student at the Anschutz Medical Campus, has generated anxiety and created some interruptions in your lives. Please know that we are doing all we can to support those most directly affected by the shootings, to create opportunities for you to demonstrate support, to ensure your safety on campus and to cooperate with authorities in the ongoing investigation. 

Information: The university is honoring the request of the local police to not discuss this matter, to preserve the integrity of the investigation. A gag order issued by the court this week prohibits police and certain other university personnel from commenting on the case. We appreciate your continued cooperation in helping us honor the authorities’ request by not giving media interviews. We urge you to sign up for RAVE, the university’s emergency notification system, so you may receive timely alerts in the event of future emergencies on campus. You can choose to be contacted via text message, email and voicemail, but you must sign up in order to receive the alerts. Also, please know that we will continue to send you communications with regular updates.
 
Support: Monday’s campus meeting, and our conversations with you, provided an opportunity for us to pull together. We were heartened to witness the desire to help those affected by the tragedy. Today’s gathering at the Anschutz Medical Campus and vigil on the Denver Campus provide a reminder of the healing power of community. These are just the first events on campus; the Anschutz Medical Campus Student Senate will host a Coming Together for the campus on Wednesday, Aug. 1, from 3-6 p.m., including a fundraising component. More details will follow via campus email. Other events being planned include donation collections and blood drives. We will keep you informed about these events as details become available.
 
Safety: At Monday’s campus meeting, many of you raised concerns about what is being done to ensure your safety on campus. We would like to assure you that Campus Police, with the assistance of local and federal law enforcement, have conducted thorough police sweeps of buildings on the Anschutz Medical Campus using specially-trained dogs, and all the buildings have been deemed safe. Concerns over suspicious packages were also taken very seriously. The authorities investigated and those packages were deemed to be of no threat. In addition, the university is starting an inventory of all campus labs to ensure no substances are missing.

From the initial and ongoing emergency response of our physicians, residents, and other dedicated health professionals to the diligent work of our police department, which has worked tirelessly to ensure a safe campus, and finally to the current outpouring of support for the victims, we are proud of our university’s collective response to this horrifying event. The university stands ready to help you cope as well; please see the attached list of Campus Resources.
 
Thank you again for your continued cooperation, sympathy and community. 

Sincerely,
Don Elliman

Sunday, July 22, 2012; 5:55 p.m.
As of 2:30 p.m. Sunday July 22, the Anschutz Medical Campus continues to operate on its normal weekend schedule. There are no restrictions in place.
The University Police Department with the assistance of local and federal personnel and specially-trained dogs completed a check of the campus and the buildings. There were no discoveries or surprises, just as we anticipated.
Near campus, the Aurora Police Department has reopened East 17th Avenue. There should be no disruptions to your commute to the campus.
Important Information for Monday morning
Beginning tomorrow morning, Monday, July 23, security personnel will be deployed at the entrances to many university buildings. You will be required to display your CU Denver l Anschutz Medical Camps ID badge to enter these buildings. To ensure all personnel that enter the buildings are university faculty, staff or students, many doors into the buildings that are typically unlocked will be locked requiring entry into the building at the security check points.
While we know this is an inconvenience, we have adequate security personnel to expedite your entry into the building provided your University ID badge is clearly displayed on your person. As you exit a building, PLEASE do not allow anyone to enter the building. This could compromise the safety of everyone in the building. Please direct that person to the security check point entrance. This includes individuals displaying University badges.
For buildings with security check points, visitors will be admitted only when escorted by a badged member of the campus community. Please ask your guests to contact you upon their arrival so you can meet them at the security check point. Guests will be issued a visitor pass so that you know they entered the building through a security check point.
University Police Department should be contacted if anyone is observed in these buildings without a badge or visitor pass. For the remainder of the campus, there will be additional security personnel on duty. Please contact University Police to report any suspicious or unwanted person or activity. We can be contacted at 303-724-4444.
While we have not received any information that causes concern about the safety of the campus community, we do want to ensure there are no unwelcome visitors that may disrupt your work/study day. Our goal is to ensure a safe environment for research, education and patient care.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
Doug Abraham, Chief of Police

The Anschutz Medical Campus is operating on its normal weekend schedule. There are no restrictions in place.
The University Police Department is continuing to work with specially trained dogs throughout the campus and in the buildings. There is no estimated time of completion. Should you see one of these teams, please do not approach or distract the dog.

The closure of East 17th Avenue between Peoria Street and Oakland Street continues. The Adams County Bomb Squad is working in conjunction with other area and federal bomb squads. We continue to be in contact with the incident command and are comfortable that there is no danger to the campus. The process may include a controlled detonation which may be heard around the campus.

There may be media observed around the campus. As a reminder, representatives of the media are allowed in the outdoor common areas that are accessible by the general public. They are not allowed to block sidewalks, streets or driveways.

Friday, July 20, 2012; 5:50 p.m. --Message from CU Denver Police Chief Doug Abraham
Faculty, staff and students,
As you were notified earlier today, the suspect in the murders in Aurora was a graduate student at the Anschutz Medical Campus until early June 2012. The suspect is currently in custody.
While there is no evidence to suggest there is any threat to the campus, we are exercising an overabundance of caution to ensure campus safety. This weekend, we have specially trained dogs that will be working with our police department in certain locations on campus. The disruption should be minimal and the campus will be operating as usual.
The Aurora Police Department along with other municipal, county, and federal agencies is keeping East 17th Avenue from Peoria Street to Oakland Street closed. Please avoid that area in your travels. If you are a student who has been displaced by this disruption, you can contact Cheryl Gibson at 303-724-7684 for housing options.
As always, please report any suspicious activities, persons, or items to the University Police Department at 303-724-4444 or 911 from any campus phone.
 
4:45 p.m. -- University of Colorado Statement on July 20 Shooting
The University of Colorado community, particularly the CU Anschutz Medical Campus community, extends its deepest condolences to the victims, family and friends affected by today's tragic shooting. The expertise and professionalism in the response of the doctors, nurses, other health care professionals and counseling professionals at the University of Colorado Hospital has been exceptional. We also appreciate the work of all those throughout the campus who responded to the tragedy.

After an investigation, the Denver Public Health Department confirmed that active tuberculosis (TB) has been diagnosed in a University of Colorado Denver Campus student. The student is being treated, and those individuals who had significant exposure to the student have been notified and medical evaluations are in progress.
 
Tuberculosis is caused by bacteria that can be transmitted through the air from a person with active TB in the lungs. Transmission usually requires several days of prolonged indoor exposure, so evaluation is usually limited to those specific individuals.
 
In a message to Denver Campus students, the university emphasized that all precautions necessary have been taken and expressed confidence in the health department’s handling of the matter.
If you have questions or concerns related to the illness, please see the Colorado Department of Public Health website or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

At the University of Colorado Denver and Anschutz Medical Campus we have been seeing a recent rash of ‘phishing’ attacks on our email accounts. Phishing is an attempt to gain access to user names, passwords and other personal information by masquerading as a trustworthy user or entity. Emails purportedly from social web sites, auction sites, online payment processors, even university IT, commonly are used to lure you into revealing your personal information.

See one recent phishing email example at: http://www.ucdenver.edu/about/departments/ITS/News/Pages/PhishingAttacks.aspx.   

You are encouraged to simply delete suspicious emails. Think of it as you would any spam – unwanted, unsolicited email.  

Remember, our IT Services will NEVER ask for your password! If you receive an email requesting your username and password (or an email containing a link to a URL that asks for that information) that email is NOT a legitimate email from IT Services.

Nov. 8, 2010 -- Realistic elements of emergency drill enhance experience

Doctors, clinicians and administrators from the School of Medicine Depression Center and the University of Colorado Hospital Psychiatric Outpatient Clinic participated in the final portion of an exercise series Nov. 3. After extensive planning and a preparatory tabletop exercise conducted on Sept. 29, participants discovered what it might be like to face an armed and angry patient in their clinical spaces on the second floor (third level) of Building 500.

The threep-hour drill was part of an exercise series coordinated by UC Denver’s Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Stu Pike along with Depression Center Director Somer Aly, University of Colorado Hospital Outpatient Services Manager Gary Kushner and University Chief of Police Doug Abraham. Incorporating 15 actors and ten members of the Police Department, the drill provided participants with realistic scenarios for the 50 participants from the two clinics. Three scenarios were staged to test responses, as well as security and notification systems and processes.

For the drill, University Police Officer Kinshasa Sayers portrayed a very convincing, distraught veteran seeking help at the clinic. Other volunteers took on the roles of other patients. Their roles were played out in three separate scenarios, including one in which an individual was taken hostage by the armed perpetrator. In each instance, while clinic personnel were attempting to understand how to help this upset patient, he became belligerent pulling out a special training handgun and fired blanks to simulate real shots.

As the threats in each scenario escalated, alarms were triggered and University Police “responded” to calls for help phoned in to 911 from university extensions and to 303-724-4444. Officers arriving “on scene” were armed with simulated weapons and addressed the threat by sweeping the area and eventually subduing the suspect.

After each scenario, Pike led a discussion of what participants had experienced and what aspects of our security may need closer scrutiny.

Executive Vice President, Anschutz Medical Campus Lily Marks was on hand to observe the exercise and thanked the participants, “this is a very valuable use of everyone’s time.”

In concluding remarks, Pike noted “studies show if you’ve rehearsed these kinds of scenarios, you are better prepared in a real situation.”

 Oct. 25, 2010 --

Emergency drill in Building 500 planned for Nov. 3

 

As part of UC Denver’s ongoing efforts to be prepared when threats develop, an emergency drill is set for Wednesday, Nov. 3 on the second floor of Building 500 on the Anschutz Medical Campus. 

This drill is designed to establish a learning environment for participants to exercise emergency response plans, policies, and procedures as they pertain to responding to a threatening individual in the psychiatric clinics.

To conduct an effective exercise, University Police and other university personnel helped to develop the mock activity, and they’ll take part in exercise conduct and evaluation. The purpose of this exercise is to inform and evaluate participant actions against current response plans and capabilities for a criminal incident response.

Please avoid the second floor on Wednesday, Nov. 3 and do not be alarmed by the police activities in the area that day. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Please direct questions to Stuart Pike at 303-724-0148 or stuart.pike@ucdenver.edu.

Aurora to test outdoor emergency sirens on Nov. 9

The Aurora Office of Emergency Management will conduct a test of the Audible Outdoor Warning System on Tuesday, Nov. 9 at 11 a.m.

The test ensures that the warning systems are ready when needed and that the public is aware of the operation of the siren.

There will be no voice announcement heard during this test.

If you have questions, contact the Aurora Fire Department 303-326-8999.

 Oct. 21, 2010 -- Response to meningitis-related reports

The untimely death of a Colorado State University student originally suspected to have meningitis serves as a reminder of how quickly serious illnesses can develop and potentially spread. Though we do not know all the particulars of this case, we do know that a vaccine could protect others against four types of meningococcal disease (N. meningitides A, C, Y and W-135).  

We encourage all UC Denver students to be informed of the differences between bacterial and viral meningitis. Understand how this illness is spread and heed warning signs including: rapid onset of illness, fever, headache, vomiting and lethargy. Additional information about meningitis is available online from the Centers for Disease Control.

While we await more details of these latest reported cases, UC Denver is in communication with area health authorities. We will continue to provide information here on our Alert website, as well as in additional messaging, as appropriate.

The Auraria Immunizations Office has available 400 free meningitis vaccines (while supplies last) for Auraria Campus-based students who do not have immunization insurance coverage and are considered high risk; college age freshmen, living in a congregate setting or determined by a medical provider. To find out if you are eligible, stop by the Health Center at Auraria Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m. or Fridays 8 a.m. to noon and 1-2:30 p.m. For additional Auraria Immunization Clinic Information call 303-556-2525.

For Aurarira-based faculty/staff and for Anschutz Medical Campus students, faculty and staff, please contact your primary healthcare provider for vaccine availability.

Oct. 20, 2010 -- CSU issues alert following suspected meningitis death

Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins is reporting the death of a student from suspected meningitis.

This tragic news is renewing concerns and reminders for UC Denver students, faculty and staff at the Denver/Auraria Campus and the Anschutz Medical Campus.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) describes meningococcal disease as a "potenitally life-threatening illness."  The spread of this illness is not common and occurs when close, face-to-face contact allows saliva from someone with meningococcal disease or someone carrying the meningococcal bacteria in their nose or throat to get in the nose or throat of another person. Additional information is available from the Centers for Disease Control.

While we await more details of these latest reported cases, UC Denver is in communication with area health authorities. We will continue to provide information on this Alert website, as well as in additional messaging, as appropriate.

Meningitis vaccines have been offered through health services offices in the Health Center at Auraria and Environmental Health and Safety based on the Anschutz Medical Campus (for availability or appointments at AMC call 303-724-0345).

Emergency Notification System testing scheduled

UC Denver will be conducting tests of the Emergency Notificaiton System (ENS) the week of Oct. 18 using the Rave notification system which delivers text, e-mail and recorded phone messages.

This planned testing include students, faculty and staff at both the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora and the Denver Campus with the Auraria Campus.

You should expect to receive one or more test alert messages on the telecommunications tool(s) you have registered in the Rave system and via UC Denver e-mail accounts.

It is important to note that while a test is planned, please read any ENS message you do receive to ensure that it is the test and not a real emergency. Also, the test message may ask you to simply confirm receipt as confirmation that your information is correct in the system.

If you have not yet registered your primary communication tool information in the Rave system, please do so now at: www.getrave.com.

Evacuation drills scheduled for Denver Campus buildings

UC Denver will be conducting building evacuation drills for tenants in 1380 Lawrence St. (Lawrence Street Center) and 1250 14th St. (Dravo-CU Building) on Thursday, Oct. 14 between 9-11 a.m.

The purpose of the drills is to provide tenants and building management an opportunity to become familiar with emergency procedures that may require quick and orderly departure to a designated relocation area outside. The following is a summary of tenant responsibilities during a building evacuation drill and in the event of a true emergency. Please pass this on to all students, staff, and other tenants prior to the drill.

• When a fire alarm goes off on your floor, evacuate the  building immediately.  If a fire alarm has gone off in the building, but not on your floor, do not evacuate - wait for further instructions over the PA system.

• Use the stairs to evacuate – the elevators will automatically be recalled to the lobby and will be out of service.

• Do not carry books, heavy/bulky items or coffee cups while evacuating down the stairwell.

• Follow the directives of the floor-wardens and building personnel (wearing red caps) – they will guide tenants out of the building towards the relocation area.

• Stay in the relocation area and look for your floor-warden to regroup – please, do not wander off! 

• Wait until the “all-clear” is given for tenants to re-enter the building.

If you have a physical or medical condition that prohibits you from walking down the stairwell during the drill, notify your department’s floor warden prior to the drill. You will be instructed as to where to gather on your floor during the drill.

UCD Fire and Life Safety is committed to providing the tenants in 1380 Lawrence St. and 1250 14th St. with clear instructions and practice of emergency building evacuations. Your cooperation will ensure that things go smoothly and quickly, both during the drill and in the event of a true emergency.

Please contact Trisha Bonati, UCD Fire & Life Safety at patricia.bonati@ucdenver.edu or 303-724-0869 with any questions or concerns.

New information sheds new light on bug problem

(August 11, 2010) UC Denver's Facilities team now has information indicating that the bugs plaguing Building 402 (former U.S. Army facility at Revere Court and East 19th Ave.) on the Anschutz Medical Campus may be bat bugs rather than bed bugs. However, because it is possible that both of these insects are present, efforts to eradicate the pests are proceeding regardless of the specific bug type.

Entomologists (insect experts) at Colorado State University (CSU) have examined samples of the bugs collected in Building 402 -- identifying the samples as bat bugs. While bat bugs can bite humans, they do not carry disease and seek bats as hosts. To survive, these insects must remain near their host, unlike bed bugs which can be carried unseen in bags and other items.

To the naked eye, these two insects appear quite similar. But under a microscope, the differences are clearly visible. We are asking the CSU experts to examine additional samples to help clarify if we are dealing with two different insects.

In the meantime, we have been working with colleagues from the CU Boulder Campus and, over the past several weeks, we have used their equipment to heat affected spaces to 130 degrees for a minimum of six hours. This approach also kills bat bugs.

Our next steps will include monitoring the imminent natural migration of bats away from the Anschutz Medical Campus buildings. Once the bats are gone, we can thoroughly clean attic spaces and seal cracks to block them from re-entering.

As an additional effort, we also have been working with Radar, a specially-trained 'bug sniffing' dog, to identify spaces that may harbor insects, no live insects have been found.

Anyone who sees or suspects a problem in their campus building should immediately call the Facilities Management Customer Service Center at 303-724-1777. Questions about pests in UC Denver locations also can be sent to Benjamin.Jones@ucdenver.edu.

Facilities team works to eradicate bed bug problem

(posted August 4, 2010) They’re tiny, they’re irritating and they bite humans, but they do not carry disease. In recent years, bed bugs have increasingly surfaced in homes, offices and other buildings across the country.

When bed bugs were confirmed in Building 402 (former U.S. Army facility at Revere Court and East 19th Ave.) on the Anschutz Medical Campus, our Facilities Management team began working closely with building tenants, and they are continuing to reach out to answer questions and offer information.

To deal with the problem, we called on colleagues from the CU Boulder Campus who recently have been battling the bugs, particularly in housing units. To help address the UC Denver situation, this past weekend, the Boulder team brought along the latest technology they’re using to successfully eradicate these pests. It's a thermal treatment that heats affected spaces to 130 degrees for a minimum of six hours. Crews will be back out re-treating with the thermal technology to offer a one two punch to hopefully eradicate all of the bugs.

Following the heat treatment, a crew will thoroughly clean the areas and remove all dead bugs. In the coming weeks, to help ensure that the heat treatment has been effective, a specially trained dog will “sniff” for live bugs.

Anyone who sees or suspects a problem in their campus building should immediately call the Facilities Management Customer Service Center at 303-724-1777. Questions about pests in UC Denver locations also can be sent to Benjamin.Jones@ucdenver.edu.

Individuals who suspect they may have bed bugs in their home are encouraged to contact a pest control firm, many offer free inspections.

For more information please see: http://ucdenver.edu/academics/research/AboutUs/health-safety/services/safety/Pages/BedBugs.aspx  and general information about bed bugs is available at: http://www.cdphe.state.co.us/dc/zoonosis/bedbug.pdf
