Emergency Preparedness Plan
Please contact Institute staff or your class advisor in case of any emergency.
While at Grainger Hall
- Shelter in Place: Keeping facility attendees, citizens and staff in place or in a particular shelter location for the emergency that has presented itself (examples: tornado, active shooter, or a threat inside/outside or in the vicinity of your building).
- Evacuation: Movement of facility attendees, citizens, and staff out of building and relocating to an outside assembly point. A good example of this would be a fire. Grainger Hall assembly point: Sidewalks surrounding Grainger Hall
- Relocation to Another Building Evacuation: Movement of building occupants out of the entire building to a designated off-site shelter facility. This may occur when there is inclement weather during an emergency.
- Your buildings off site shelter facilities are located at:
- Vilas Hall, 821 University Avenue, Madison WI
- Humanities Building, 455 N. Park Street, Madison WI
- The evacuation party should go to the assembly point(s) first before traveling to a host facility
- The host facility (Vilas Hall and/or Humanities Building) should be consulted on what arrangements need to be made to support the facility attendees and the estimated time of arrival of the evacuation party if possible
- Building Manager or designee should notify the University of Wisconsin Madison Police Department of where the evacuation party is relocating and where their facility attendees can be picked up if necessary.
While at the Fluno Center
- Exits, the Fluno Center has stairwells on the East and West ends of the building that serve all eight floors. On the second floor there is an additional stairwell at the end of the South hallway by room 221 that leads out of the building.
- House Phones, throughout the Fluno Center there are black phones that may be used to call the front desk at any time of the day or night by pressing “0”.
- Emergency Siren and Lights, if the Fluno Center siren and lights are activated this means the fire alarm system has been initialized in the building. Everyone must leave the building immediately using the nearest stairs.
- Medical Emergency, in the event of a medical emergency please contact the front desk immediately by using a house phone and dialing “0”. If it is a very minor injury and only basic first aid is needed you may call or stop by the front desk on the first floor for assistance.
