In electrical emergencies, avoid touching equipment that is smoking, sparking, tripping circuit breakers, or giving electric shocks.

In the case of flooding, never enter areas where there is submerged electrical equipment. Only if you are trained to do so and it is safe:

  • Unplug electrical equipment before water reaches it.
  • Turn off circuit breakers for flooded areas.
  • Use plastic or tarps to cover water-sensitive materials and equipment.
  • Move materials from floors and other flooded areas to a safe location.

If you are trapped in a stalled elevator on campus, do not try to exit the elevator car through the roof or by forcing the doors. To summon help, use the elevator's emergency telephone, call 919- 530-6106 from a cellular phone, or bang on the doors and shout for assistance. Wait for trained personnel to assist you from the elevator.
