Explosions on Campus

In the event a mishap occurs such as an explosion or a downed aircraft (crash) on campus, take the following action:

  • Immediately take cover under tables, desks, and other objects, which will give protection against falling glass or debris.
  • After the effects of the explosion and/or fire have subsided, notify PSU Campus Police at 911. Give your name and describe the location and nature of the emergency.
  • If necessary, or when directed to do so, activate the building alarm.
  • When the building alarm is sounded or when told to leave by Police, Fire or University officials, walk quickly to the nearest marked exit and ask others to do the same.
