- In the event of a major earthquake with major structural damage apparent on the campus or in the local area:
- Follow the above procedures until the quake has stopped.
- Decisions to evacuate your building and/or the campus will be made by the senior administrator on campus or by College Police personnel after duty hours or on weekends/holidays.
