HAZMAT Drill in Hurd Science Center, 3/28

The DeSales University Emergency Services Department will be conducting a HAZMAT drill on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.

The drill will simulate a chemical accident in one of the chemistry labs in the Hurd Science Center. During the drill, all occupants of the Hurd Science Center will be evacuated via the fire alarm system and all HVAC systems in the building will be temporarily shut down, in an effort to test the University’s response to such an event. The drill will begin at approximately 2:00 p.m.

All components of the Campus Emergency Alert System (CEALS) will be utilized during this drill, i.e. e2Campus, Big Voice, and the Visiplex indoor mass notification system. Please follow the instructions provided by CEALS. The drill will end at approximately 2:15 p.m.

Below are vital instructions to follow for the upcoming drill:

  • All occupants present at the time of the drill in the Hurd Science Center will be asked to evacuate the building, upon activation of the fire alarm system, and follow instructions provided by CEALS.
  • Occupants of other campus buildings are asked to avoid the Hurd Science Center and its immediate vicinity during the drill. We ask you to become familiar with all components of CEALS.
  • Please follow instructions broadcasted via the Campus Emergency Alert System (CEALS)
