Aircraft Crash or Explosion

Immediate Actions 

  • Immediately take cover under tables, desks, and other objects which will give protection against flying or falling glass, debris and a possible fire ball or fire storm from ruptured fuel tanks. 
  • After the effects of the explosion and/or fire have subsided, dial 911 or the Office of Public Safety 678.407.5333. Give your name and describe the location and nature of the emergency. 
  • If necessary, or when directed to do so, activate the building fire alarm. 
  • When the building evacuation alarm is sounded or when told to leave by campus officials, walk quickly to the nearest marked exit and ask others to do the same. 
  • Assist people with disabilities exiting the building. 
  • Do not move seriously injured persons unless they are in immediate danger of being killed by a subsequent fire, building collapse or other event. 
  • Once outside move to your building assembly area that is at least 300 feet away from the affected building. Keep streets and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and crews. 
  • If requested, assist the emergency crews. 
  • Re-enter the building only when advised by emergency personnel.
