7. General Responsibilities

In case of an emergency, all employees must follow the specific emergency procedure found in this plan and/or the directions of his/her immediate supervisor. Emergencies that may be life-threatening should be reported immediately to 911 (9-911 from campus phone). Non-life threatening emergencies should be reported to Campus Safety at 419-559-2253. Your personal safety is of utmost concern. All employees are responsible for taking precautions to assure their safety by familiarizing themselves with this plan.

Building Coordinators have been assigned for each area. The Coordinator will have the following general responsibilities prior to and during any emergency.

(A) Emergency Preparedness: Insure that each employee has an Emergency Procedures Quick Reference Guide.

(B) Emergency Situations: 

  1. Inform all employees under their direction of the emergency condition.  Campus Safety will activate the emergency phone call system located in all offices, classrooms, and labs.
  2. Evaluate the impact the emergency has on their activity and take appropriate action. This may include ceasing operations and initiating building evacuation.
  3. Maintain emergency telephone communications with officials from their own area of activity (or from an alternate site, if necessary).

  1. Educate their students and/or employees concerning College emergency procedures as well as evacuation for their building.
  2. Inform their students and/or staff of an emergency and initiate emergency procedures as outlined in this Emergency Response Manual.
  3. Survey, evaluate and estimate their assigned building in order to determine the impact a fire or other disaster could have on their facility. Report all safety hazards to Campus Safety.
