BE PREPARED FOR CAMPUS EMERGENCIES
Every member of the Spelman Community should take steps in advance to be prepared for emergencies on and off campus. In addition to being familiar with campus emergency procedures, taking the following steps and having available the items suggested below can greatly enhance your ability to remain safe and or assist others during an emergency.
Program the Spelman Public Safety Department’s phone number, 404-525-6401 into your cell phone so you can call them quickly in case of emergency.
Be sure your roommates and/or close friends know how to contact your parents or other emergency contacts.
.Besure my parents know how to contact my roommates and/or close friends in case of emergencies.
Have an entry in my cell phone of ICE (In Case of Emergency) so that police/fire/EMS can contact my emergency contact if I cannot speak.
Know more than one way to get out of every building where you live or have classes. If one exit is blocked, be able to get out of the building using a different exit.
Know where to shelter at home and at school in case of severe weather such as a tornado.
For a severe weather shelter area you should avoid: windows and areas where there might be flying glass, exterior walls, rooms with high ceilings such as auditoriums, and I should try to get to one of the lowest levels in the building.
When you go out at night have a plan on how you will get home. Have friends that you can call to pick you up if you get stuck at a party or location where you feel uncomfortable.
Be sure your roommates/friends know where you are going and the people you will be with.
Know how to get to the Spelman Student Health Center if you get sick. Plan to get a flu shot during the fall semester. To decrease your chances of getting the flu wash your hands regularly with alcohol based soap, & cough into your sleeve and not your hands.
Know the housing staff for your residence hall, including Resident Assistants and Professional Staff.
Have an emergency kit that includes a flashlight, a radio (and fresh batteries), nonperishable food, a first aid kit, and other items.
