  3. If you are in no immediate danger, remain where you are and wait for emergency personnel to arrive
  4. If you are in immediate danger, move to an area where you can shelter in place dependent on the situation (i.e. in a fire, move to a room with an outside window or sprinkler system; in a tornado move to an inner core room with no windows)
  5. DO NOT use elevators during an emergency evacuation unless requested by KUPD of KCK Fire Department
  6. All staff is encourage to carry a sounding device like a small whistle, flashlight, and cell phone to alert emergency personnel of your location
