During an emergency remain calm and listen for instructions from the person in charge, whetherfrom school personnel or an emergency response team. Make sure the 911 operator is called. If theemergency involves the whole school and is during regular office hours, someone in the administration willmake the call. If this is a personal emergency, such as a medical emergency, or after hours and the office isclosed, the student or a capable friend or acquaintance should make the call to 911.If you have not had a first aid course, please become familiar with the first aid survival guide at thefront of the phone directory white pages.
When you dial 911, be prepared to tell the 911 operator:
1. The phone number from which you are calling.
2. The address.
3. Any special directions on how to find the victim. For example: “Go to 4300 Evergreen Lane inAnnandale. Park in the “tunnel” that goes through the building. Go to the 2nd floor of the building.”
4. Describe the victim’s condition (i.e., unconscious, bleeding, burned, broken bones, etc.).
5. Describe what happened, how many were injured, and what help is being given.
6. Give your name.
7. Do not hang up until 911 operators tell you. They may have special questions.
In case of fire or fire drill on the Annandale Campus, all persons are to proceed quickly and calmly tothe parking lot to the south (behind the building). Fire extinguishers are located on the wall or near everystairwell and most exits. Near every exit there is also a diagram of the campus with the most expedient routefor teaching the main parking lot.
Do not park in the single-lane drive around the building at any time. It is a fire lane, and must be keptclear for emergency vehicles.
