IF A FIRE ALARM IS ACTIVATED, THE BUILDING MUST BE EVACUATED
In the event of an evacuation, follow the building evacuation guides, posted throughout all campus
buildings. Be aware of primary and secondary evacuation routes closest to you. Each building has designated primary and secondary “Rally Points” for occupants to assembly. In the event of an evacuation, Rally Points provide a process for
reunification and accountability. Do not re-enter the evacuated building until given official approval to do so by law enforcement, facilities management, or building leadership. In the event of an active harmer situation and personal evacuation is
possible, move as far away from the incident as possible until safe.
Evacuation for those with access and functional needs
If you or someone you know has an access or functional need that prevents
them from full evacuation, head to the nearest emergency stairwell. Notify emergency personnel that you or someone you know is in an emergency stairwell. Emergency personnel will be responsible for assisting with the evacuation from the building.
- Students, faculty, and staff may be directed to shelter-in-place. If a shelter in-place action is activated, you will receive notification via CU Alerts!
- Take refuge
in a small, interior room with no or few windows.
- Close and lock doors when possible.
- Stay away from windows and decrease visibility from interior and exterior openings.
- Turn off
- Silence cellphones and turn off monitors and projectors.
- Remain in place until given the “ALL CLEAR” from CU Alerts! or emergency personnel.
Lockdowns are initiated from the Auraria Campus Police Department. When initiated, all exterior doors will automatically lock, preventing entry from the outside. Emergency exit will still be possible. Interior doors with badge readers will
function as normal.
