                     Guide to Campus Safety
                 and Substance Abuse Awareness

                           October 2010

This ―Guide to Campus Safety and Substance Abuse Awareness‖ is
provided in compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988,
the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (and
associated U.S. Department of Education’s supporting regulations)
and the Crime Awareness & Campus Security Act of 1990.

As recipients of campus-based Federal allocations, the College is
responsible for complying with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of
1988, the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (and the
U.S. Department of Education’s supporting regulations) and the
Crime Awareness & Campus Security Act of 1990. Sanctions for
violation of the regulations of the Act are significant and could
result in the suspension of federal aid payments, suspension or
termination of grants, or government-wide suspension or debarment.
Such sanctions would dramatically affect the College’s ability to
provide students and the profession with the level of excellence
attributed to Palmer.

The term “College” as used throughout this brochure refers to
the entire unit of Palmer College of Chiropractic, including
operations on the main campus in Davenport, Iowa; the branch
campus in San Jose, California; and the branch campus in Port
Orange, Florida; and any other divisions or entities operating under
the direction and control of Palmer College Foundation.

       II. THE COLLEGE’S COMMITMENT

A. Commitment

  Palmer College of Chiropractic recognizes the inherent risks
  to the total College community associated with alcohol and
  other drug abuse. The College is committed to maintaining
  an environment conducive to the intellectual and personal
  development of students and to the safety and welfare of all
  members of the College community. As such, the College
  has published educational information and established a
  policy and associated rules to:

     Foster awareness about and prevent the unlawful
     possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol
     by all students and employees on College premises or at
     College related activities or service functions on or off
     College premises or at non-College activities on College
     premises that adversely affect the College community
     and/or the pursuit of its objectives;
     Develop, disseminate, interpret and support the
     enforcement of College policies and rules that are
     consistent with local, state and federal law;
     Promote healthy choices concerning the use of alcohol
     and other drugs, emphasizing the elimination of illegal
     use, high-risk behavior, harmful use and related
     violence;
     Promote a safe, healthy and learning-conducive
     environment and productive workplace; and
     Provide information about available intervention,
     evaluation, referral and treatment services.




                                                               10

   and smoke-free work and education environment.

   Accordingly, the Board requires Palmer College
   administration to develop and enforce administrative rules,
   processes and procedures necessary to fully comply with this
   policy, applicable laws and regulations.”

C. Administrative Rules Regarding Alcohol and Other
   Drug Use

   The College strictly prohibits the unlawful manufacture,
   sale, distribution, dispensing, possession, solicitation or use
   of alcohol or controlled substances. Additionally, the
   College limits the presence, use, consumption, possession,

   use of prescription and/or non-prescription medications
   which may inhibit the ability to perform his/her required job
   duties. Any employee regarded as unfit for duty for any
   reason may not be permitted to work or may be temporarily
   reassigned until it is determined that said employee is free
   from impairment and fit and able for duty.

   Any student reporting to class under the influence or
   discovered to be under the influence of alcohol or non-
   prescribed drugs, during the school/work day may be asked
   to leave the premises.

D. Disciplinary Action

   An employee in violation of this policy may be subject to
   corrective action up to and including termination of
   employment and/or given the opportunity to participate in
   rehabilitative services at his or her own expense.

   a violation occurring within five days of the applicable
   conviction. Failure to promptly report such convictions may
   result in immediate termination of employment.




                                                                12

   policy regarding alcohol or other drug use may be referred
   for prosecution and subject to legal action in addition to
   disciplinary action initiated by the College. Such legal action
   may include criminal charges that can limit an individual’s
   ability to obtain a license to practice chiropractic in certain
   states.

   It is the responsibility of students and employees to know
   and comply with the College’s policy as well as applicable

                                                                18
           IV. SUBSTANCE ABUSE AWARENESS

The following information is provided to create awareness of issues
surrounding drug use and to assist individuals that may require
assistance in dealing with substance abuse.

Do I Have a Problem?

How do you know if you or someone you know has a drug or
alcohol problem? Experts estimate that as many as 20 percent of the
population may be chemically dependent. Generally speaking,
someone who has more than three drinks during a drinking
occasion, or drinks heavily more than once a week, most likely has
some sort of dependency problem.

   A. Substance Abuse Screening Questions

   1. Does alcohol or drugs interfere with your life or the life of
      someone you care about?
   2. Do you miss work or class because you were drinking or
      using drugs?
   3. Have you ever regretted what you said or did while you were
      drinking or using drugs?
   4. Do you drink or take drugs to escape your worries or
      troubles?
   5. Have you ever felt that your life would be much better if you
      didn’t drink or take drugs?
   6. Do you find it impossible to stop drinking or using?
   7. Do you feel compelled to drink or use drugs at social
      occasions?

       If you answered ―yes‖ to any of these questions, you may be
       at risk. Data from the ―Special Report to the U.S. Congress



                                                                 19
   on Alcohol and Health, 1997‖ indicates that while one in ten
   may develop alcohol dependency, alcohol abuse is much
   more frequent and may be part of occasional drinking
   behavior.

B. Drugs and Alcohol: Facts vs. Myths

   Each year illegal drug use and the abuse of alcohol are the
   number one causes of death for persons aged 15-25. No one
   is immune to chemical dependency and the only way to
   prevent addiction to drugs or alcohol is through either total
   abstinence or controlled use. Before you use drugs or
   alcohol, learn the facts.

   Marijuana is a safe drug because it isn’t addictive.

   FACT: People can become psychologically dependent on
   pot and have physical withdrawal symptoms after stopping
   heavy use.

   I only drink heavily on the weekends, when I party. How
   does this affect my health?

   FACT: Even weekend-only use of alcohol can result in liver
   damage and disease, ulcers, heart disease, brain damage and
   malnutrition if done regularly.

   The limited use of cocaine or amphetamines isn’t
   dangerous as long-term heavy use.

   FACT: The use of cocaine and amphetamines, even in
   limited amounts, results in an increased risk of heart attack.




                                                                20
   What about the use of hallucinogens?

   FACT: Hallucinogen use, especially PCP, can result in an
   irreversible drug-induced psychotic state or delusions of
   omnipotence, which may trigger life-threatening behavior.

   I don't do "heavy" drugs, just sniff a little glue now and
   then.

   FACT: Even infrequent use of inhalants (poppers, rush,
   laughing gas, glue and paint thinner) may cause mental
   confusion, mood swings, delusions and hallucinations.

C. Drugs and Alcohol: Health Risks

   A Description of Health Risks Associated With the Use of
   Illicit Drugs and the Abuse of Alcohol.

V. CAMPUS AND COMMUNITY SUBSTANCE ABUSE
                 RESOURCES

A. Procedures for Obtaining Substance Abuse Assistance

   The College recognizes that substance abuse is a significant
   public health problem. Further, the College recognizes that
   drug and alcohol abuse can be successfully treated and is
   committed to helping employees and students who suffer
   from these problems, while holding them responsible for
   their own recovery. Thus, the College offers both employee
   and student assistance programs for employees, students and
   their dependents.

   Employees and students who recognize they may have a
   drug or alcohol related problem are encouraged to seek help
   for substance abuse issues before a policy violation and
   corrective action becomes necessary. Student or employee
   eligibility for individuals voluntarily requesting assistance in
   the diagnosis and/or treatment for substance abuse will not
   be jeopardized by College officials if the student or
   employee requests diagnosis and/or treatment for his/her
   substance abuse concerns.

B. Iowa Laws

     1. Alcohol

        Summary of Iowa Laws Governing the Use and Sale of
        Alcohol

        a. Legal Drinking Age. As of May 1986, the legal
           drinking age in the state of Iowa is 21.

        b. Sale or Gift to a Minor. It is unlawful for any
           person to sell, give or otherwise supply alcoholic
           beverages to a minor.

        c. Motor Vehicle. Persons who are driving motor
           vehicles may not possess alcoholic beverages in open
           containers in their vehicles on public highways.

        d. Sale or Gift to an Intoxicated Person. No person
           may sell or give alcohol beverages to an intoxicated
           person.

        e. Dramshop Liability. The Dram Shop Act generally
           states that any person injured by an intoxicated
           person has a right or action of all damages sustained
           against the vendor who sold or served the intoxicated
           person, knowing that they were intoxicated, or served
           them to a point where they know they would become
           intoxicated.

        f. Social Host Liability. Any person, without a license,

       result of the acts of the intoxicated person. Advice of
       counsel is suggested for questions concerning social
       host liability.

2. Controlled Substances

   Chapter 204 of the Code of Iowa Uniform Controlled
   Substances Act. Controlled substances are categorized in
   schedules, one through five. Various substances
   classified as narcotics, hallucinogens, depressants,
   stimulants, solvents or other chemicals are specified in
   each schedule.

   Manufacture, distribution, dispense and administration of
   controlled substances (including counterfeit substances)
   are governed by state registration. Any person who
   participates in these activities without state registration is
   subject to criminal penalty. The manufacture, delivery
   and possession with intent to deliver a controlled
   substance is a prohibited act. A person violating this act
   with a Schedule 1 or 2 controlled substance (specifically
   narcotic drugs and cocaine) is guilty of a class ―C‖
   felony.

   Violations of other Schedule 1, 2 or 3 substances is
   considered a class ―D‖ felony. Violations of Schedule 4
   or 5 substances is considered a serious misdemeanor.

   Simple possession of any controlled substance, unless
   obtained with a valid practitioner's prescription, is
   considered a serious misdemeanor. Possession of the
   controlled substance marijuana can result in




                                                              35
imprisonment in the county jail for not more than six
months or a fine for not more than $1,000, or both.

A person over age 18 who illegally distributes Schedule
1 and 2 substances (narcotics and cocaine) to persons
under age 18, is guilty of a class ―B‖ felony and must
serve a minimum of five years in prison before parole.
Distribution of other Schedule 1, 2 or 3 substances to
persons under age 18, is considered a class ―C‖ felony.

Persons who sponsor, promote or assist the sponsorship
of gatherings (concerts, etc.) designed with the intent to
distribute, use or possess controlled substances, in
violation under chapter 402, and are subject to penalties
of a class ―D‖ felony.

When a person is charged with any of the criminal
offenses described above, and is found to be addicted to,
dependent upon or a chronic abuser of controlled
substances, the person can be ordered for commitment to
a licensed drug rehabilitation facility. The offender must
make arrangements to pay for the rehabilitation services.
After maximum services have been offered, the offender
must report to the court for the disposition of criminal
charges.

The Davenport City Code states that a person who is in
possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to plant,
harvest, process or consume illegal controlled substance,
is in violation of the law. This violation constitutes a
misdemeanor with a fine up to one hundred dollars.

A. Safety Awareness

   The College is concerned for the safety and well being of the
   College community and its guests and is committed to
   providing a safe and secure environment. No campus is
   isolated from crime; however, the College has implemented
   policies and associated rules and procedures to ensure
   precautionary measures are taken with regard to the well-
   being of persons on campus. It is the responsibility of all
   employees, students and visitors to comply with the
   College’s relevant policies, rules and procedures regarding
   safety and to take precautions toward ensuring their own
   safety. Additionally, the College is not liable for any stolen
   or damaged property.

   Personal Safety Tips

   The following are some simple suggestions to keep you safe
   on campus:

   In the Car
           Park in well-lighted areas.
           Walk back to the car with your key ready.
           Check beneath the car and in the back seat before
           getting into the car to make sure no one is hiding.
           Keep doors locked at all times.
           Keep your gas tank at least half full in case of
           emergency.
           Keep your car in good running condition.
           If your car breaks down, raise the hood, put on
           emergency lights and lock the doors. If a cell phone
           is available, call for help. If not, then wait for help.


                                                                  44
          Secure your valuables in the trunk of the vehicle or
          otherwise out of sight.

         there are people.
         Don’t walk alone after dark.
         Stay on populated, well-lighted streets.
         Be alert and look around you.
         Keep your purse or book bag close to your body.

X. SEXUAL ASSAULT PREVENTION AND REPORTING

 A. Sexual Assault Prevention

    The College seeks to provide a secure environment for study
    and the development of student relationships. However, even
    in an atmosphere of cooperation and support, one must take
    precautions to avoid the possibility of assault. The following
    precautions are recommended:

    ●   If you believe you are in danger of sexual assault, seek
        safety within a campus building and either contact
        Campus Security directly or ask a College employee to
        contact Security for you. Stay in the secured area until
        Campus Security arrives.

    ● If you are studying or working in a secluded area after
      regular hours, KEEP YOUR DOORS LOCKED.

    ● If you are leaving a building alone after dark, contact
      Campus Security to arrange an escort to your car.

 B. Procedures for Sexual Assault Reporting

    If you are sexually assaulted on campus, it is important
    that you seek assistance immediately. Please follow these
    procedures for assistance:

         If you are on campus, seek a safe location on campus
        and either contact Campus Security directly or ask a
        College employee to contact Security for you. Unless
        you decline, Campus Security will immediately notify
        local law enforcement authorities of the assault. At your



                                                                   55
   request, Campus Security will also assist you in
   contacting a Rape and Sexual Assault Advocacy
   Program.

   If you are off-campus, call 911 and tell the dispatcher to
   call a Rape and Sexual Assault Advocacy Program. If
   you call a friend, ask that person to call a Rape and
   Sexual Assault Advocacy Program.

   Try to register as many features or characteristics of your
   assailant as you can, things such as age, race, build,
   height, weight, tattoos, color and style of hair and voice.
   If you have a chance, write these down as soon as
   possible so you have this information to refer to later.

   Do not bathe, shower or change your clothing
   immediately following the assault. This will destroy
   important medical and legal information that will
   provide crucial evidence if you decide to file charges.

    If medical attention is needed, Security may notify an
   appropriate healthcare facility.

    It is strongly encouraged that you contact one of the
   College’s confidential counseling services.

to immediately contact local authorities, as well as, a rape
crisis center for support and advice.

Crisis center representatives will advise you on how to
proceed and provide you with information about medical
treatment and other services. Some crisis center services are
provided free of charge or on a sliding fee scale.

Should you choose to pursue criminal charges against your
assailant, crisis center representatives can provide information
regarding legal services.

If your assailant is a member of the College community,
he/she may also face disciplinary action by Palmer College
up to and including expulsion/termination.

LAWS ENACTED DURING THE 105th CONGRESS

     Effective October 1, 1998

  A. Campus Crime Statistics

     1. Manslaughter and arson are added to the categories
        schools are required to disclose.
     2. Campus disciplinary referrals for alcohol, drug and
        weapons violations must be disclosed.
     3. The reporting of ―hate crimes‖ is expanded. Crimes are
        to be reported by ―category of prejudice.‖
     4. The D.O.E. is required to gather all disclosures made for
        an annual compilation that will be made available to the
        public.
     5. The definition of campus will be expanded to require the
        disclosure of crime statistics for campus food courts
        operated by contractors, streets and sidewalks running
        through and near the campus, and certain off-campus
        facilities.
     6. Statistics will be disclosed in four categories:
        a. On campus
        b. Non campus (i.e. fraternity and sorority houses,
            remote facilities)
        c. Public property
        d. Residential facilities for students (i.e. Residence
            halls, apartments, etc.)

  B. Open Campus Police Log

     1. Schools will be required to maintain a public log of all
        reported crimes.
     2. Crimes must be made public within two business days.


                                                                   70
   3. There will be certain exceptions to protect ongoing
      investigations and victims of sensitive crimes.

C. General Provisions

   1. The campus security section of the federal Higher
      Education Act is formally named in memory of Jeanne

   2. There is a referral to the section of the law, which
      provides for a $25,000 civil penalty for institutions in
      violation of the reporting requirements.

D. Student Disciplinary Records

   1. The federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
      (FERPA) exception, which allows victims of crimes of
      violence to be informed of the outcome of student
      disciplinary hearings, is expanded to include survivors of
      non-forcible sex offenses.
   2. FERPA no longer prohibits the disclosure of the ―final
      results‖ of disciplinary proceedings involving crimes of
      violence or non-forcible sex offenses. The only name
      that can be disclosed without written consent is that of a
      student found to have committed a disciplinary violation
      and there is no affirmative obligation that this
      information be released.
   3. Schools will be able to release to parents of students who
      are under the age of 21, information about alcohol or
      drug-related disciplinary violations.

E. Drug Convictions

   1. Students convicted of various drug offenses will lose
      their student aid eligibility for specified periods of time
      depending upon whether the conviction was for use or

      D.O.E.-approved rehabilitation program.

      Campus Security at Ext. 5555 or (563) 884-5555.

   2. Please remain at your workstation/classroom during the
      power outage; but if there is inadequate lighting, move
      into hallways or other nearby open areas within the
      building. Faculty will keep students in class unless
      notified by Campus Security. Campus power failures are
      usually very short in duration, but there have been very
      rare instances of extended outages.

   3. If directed to by Campus Security, evacuate the
      building. No one is allowed to re-enter the buildings
      until power has been restored and Campus Security has
      determined it to be safe.

F. Fire

   1. Notify Campus Security at Ext. 5555 or (563) 884-5555
      immediately. Give your name, building location, room
      number, phone extension and description of the fire.

   2. Evacuations will occur when an alarm sounds
      continuously or when alerted by Campus Security.


                                                               81
3. Walk quickly in an orderly fashion to the nearest exit
   and promptly vacate the building. Do not use elevators,
   use the stairs. Assist any disabled or injured parties in the
   evacuation process.

4. Only properly trained and authorized Palmer employees
   will be allowed to extinguish a fire (Security or
   Maintenance). If the fire is beyond their control, Campus
   Security will contact the Davenport Fire Department.

5. Once outside, proceed to the designated safe area, where
   a head count will be taken. Keep streets and walkways
   clear for emergency vehicles and personnel. Do not leave
   campus unless directed to do so by the Davenport Fire
   Department or Campus Security.

6. Report any important information concerning the
   emergency to Campus Security.

7. No one is allowed to re-enter the building until the
   Davenport Fire Department or Campus Security
   determines it is safe.

8. Faculty who are teaching at the time of the fire will
   instruct their students in the orderly evacuation of the
   class and should be the last one out of the room. Faculty
   should make sure their students have vacated the
   building and arrived at the evacuation area safely.
   Students are to remain on campus during the evacuation
   and throughout the emergency, unless instructed
   otherwise.




                                                             82
   9. To reduce fire or smoke damage, close all doors and
      windows when leaving the room and the hallways if you
      have time. If you are working in a laboratory or research
      area and have sufficient time, ensure that your laboratory
      equipment and experiments are in a safe condition before
      leaving the building. Report any hazardous conditions to
      Campus Security.

      Note: If you become trapped in a building during a fire
      and a window is available, place an article of clothing
      (shirt, coat, etc.) outside the window as a marker for
      emergency personnel. Do not jump. If there is no
      window, stay near the floor, where the air will be more
      breathable. Shout at regular intervals to alert emergency
      personnel of your location.

H. Medical Emergency

   1. If a serious injury or illness occurs on campus,
      immediately contact Campus Security at Ext. 5555 or
      (563) 884-5555. Provide the following information:
      ● Your name.
      ● Building location and room, if applicable.
      ● Type and severity of the medical problem.
      ● Identify the injured or ill person, if possible.

   2. Campus Security will contact Palmer Clinic personnel
      and Davenport Emergency Services. Campus Security
      will meet and escort the Davenport emergency
      responders to the location of the injured/ill person(s).

       Campus Security is notified first in order to direct
       emergency assistance directly to the scene. Formal
       procedures are in place between Campus Security and
       Davenport Emergency Services on responding to
       emergencies originating from the College. Because of
       their familiarity with the campus and their working
       relationship with Davenport Emergency Services
       (dispatch, fire department, police department), Campus
       Security will direct the response to the scene quicker
       than if a person calls 911 independently. It may seem



                                                                 85
       like an extra step, but contacting Campus Security first
       will reduce overall response time in an emergency.

   3. Only properly trained personnel with the proper personal
      protective equipment can safely respond to, or clean up
      after, a blood or other bodily fluid spill.

4. If a student or employee experiences a work-related injury, a
   ―First Report of Injury‖ form must be filed with the Human
   Resources Office.

I. Outreach Clinic Emergency Procedures

   Palmer College of Chiropractic operates an outreach clinic,
   located at Harrison and Sixth Streets in Davenport. Even
   with its close proximity to the campus, the Davenport
   Community Outreach Clinic is not directly tied into the
   phone system. Therefore, in the event of emergency, dial
   911, then please contact Campus Security at (563) 884-5555
   and inform them of the events that have occurred. Campus
   Security will dispatch a mobile unit to investigate.

   When evacuating the premises:
   ● Exit out the front door, then stay on the sidewalk and
     proceed west on Sixth Street, away from the front of the
     building.

   In case of severe weather:
   ● Gather in the eastern side of the clinic and away from the
       windows.

   Facilities-related:




                                                                  86
   ● In an emergency, contact Campus Security at (563) 884-
     5555; for non-emergency issues, please use the
     HelpDesk system.

J. Rock Island Clinic Emergency Procedures

   Palmer College of Chiropractic’s clinic located in Rock

K. Severe Weather

   1. Reports of severe weather from the National Weather
      Service are monitored via the Internet, television and
      weather radios located in the Facilities Office and
      Campus Security offices.




                                                               87

      protection. Keep away from windows, structures with
      large free-span roofs, the uppermost stories of multi-
      story buildings and parked cars

   5. All Palmer faculty, staff and students will wait for the
      All Clear signal from Campus Security before leaving
      the designated safe areas.

   6. The sounding of the City of Davenport severe weather
      siren does not necessarily prompt an immediate
      evacuation to the severe weather shelters. The siren
      coincides with a National Weather Service warning, but
      it does not necessarily mean the weather is going to
      affect operations on the Palmer campus. When activated,
      the thunderstorm and tornado alerts have distinct tones
      and durations. The thunderstorm warning consists of
      succinct air horn blasts over a 90 second period. The
      tornado warning is a sustained tone (the universal
      tornado alert siren) that wails for three minutes.

L. Sexual Assault

      notifying Campus Security, seek shelter in your area (ex.
      under a desk) until it is safe to evacuate. Stay away from
      doors and windows.




                                                                  90
   5. The Davenport Police Department will investigate the

      evacuate employees in the building to the designated
      safe area where a head count will be taken.

   6. No one is allowed to re-enter the building after
      evacuation until the Davenport Police Department has
      determined it to be safe.


   7. If you are a witness or were in the area at the time of the

      Department when they arrive by giving them any
      additional information.

   8. Should a sniper be firing a weapon on or near campus,
      you should take cover immediately using all available
      concealment. After the shooting stops, follow steps ―1
      and 2‖ above.

N. Weather-Related Campus Closure

   If closure of the Davenport Campus is warranted, either for
   the entire day or until noon, College officials will notify the
   following Quad-City area television and radio stations. As
   for the Clinics, if classes are cancelled and the College is
   closed due to inclement weather, the Clinics will open at
   10 a.m., and clinic faculty and staff will be expected to
   report for assignments.
   The College notifies the following media of campus closures
   (except for the Clinics), but we cannot guarantee that the
   media will disseminate the information in a timely manner.

F. Conduct While Being Held Hostage

   1. Under all circumstances, attempt to stay calm and be
      alert to situations that you can exploit to your advantage.
      Remember the primary objective of your family and law
      enforcement officials will be to secure your safe return
      as quickly as possible.

   2. Do not attempt to fight back or struggle physically. No
      matter how ―reasonable‖ your captors may appear on the
      surface, they cannot be trusted to behave normally and
      their actions may be unpredictable.

   3. Comply with the instructions of your abductors as well
      as you can.




                                                               98
  4. Do not discuss what action may be taken by your family,
     friends or employer.

  5. Make a mental note of all movements including times in
     transit, direction, distances, speeds, landmarks along the
     way, special odors and sounds like transportation, bells,
     construction, etc.

  6. Whenever possible, take note of the characteristics of
     your abductor, their habits, surroundings, speech
     mannerisms and what contacts they make. Such
     information can be of great value in the ultimate
     apprehension.

  7. Generally, you cannot expect to have a good opportunity
     to escape. Any attempt to escape, however, should not be
     made unless it is indicated that your life is in imminent
     danger. Carefully calculate the best possible odds for
     success.

  8. Avoid making provocative remarks to your abductors.
     As noted, they may be unstable individuals who react
     explosively and are likely to be violent and abusive.

G. Earthquake

  During an earthquake, remain calm and quickly follow the
  steps outlined below:

  1. If indoors, seek refuge under a desk or table. Stay away
     from glass windows, shelves and heavy equipment.




                                                              99
2. If outdoors, move quickly away from building, utility
   poles and other structures. Caution: Always avoid power
   or utility lines as they may be energized.

3. If in an automobile, stop in the safest place available,
   preferably an open area away from power lines and trees.
   Stop as quickly as safety permits, but stay in the vehicle
   for the shelter it affords.

4. After the initial shock, evaluate the situation and if
   emergency help is necessary, call the Facilities Manager,
   (408) 944-6147. Protect yourself at all times and be
   prepared for after-shocks.

5. Damaged facilities should be reported to the Facilities
   Manager, (408) 944-6147. Note: Gas leaks and power
   failure create special hazards. Pease refer to the section

6. When you are told to leave by the Emergency Response
   Coordinator, walk quickly to the nearest marked exit and
   alert others to do the same.

7. Assist disabled or injured persons in evacuating the
   building. Elevators are only for use by the disabled
   during an evacuation. In case of fire no one should use
   an elevator.

   the parking lot). Keep streets and walkways clear for
   emergency vehicles and personnel.




                                                            100
