Response Guides

What Should I Do?

This guide was developed to provide you with a quick reference and to help you respond to various emergencies in a way that will help reduce the chances of serious injury to you or other persons, minimize damage to property, and assist emergency response personnel in effectively dealing with a critical incident.

Every potential emergency situation cannot be anticipated or prevented.  This guide is intended to provide basic instruction and does not provide an absolute response for every emergency.  Keeping calm, exercising common sense, following basic instructions, and calling for the assistance of trained emergency response professionals will help us mitigate, respond to, and effectively recover from any major critical incident.

Please access information about specific emergencies by clicking on the respective navigation links to the right (computer) or above (mobile).
