Make A Plan With Your Family and Friends <Return to Top>

Your use of a cellular phone, access to the Internet and other routine means of communication with family and friends could be cut off in the immediate aftermath of a campus emergency caused by severe weather, major terrorist attack, epidemic illness, etc. Across our region and perhaps the nation, cellular and all other telephone services and access to the Internet (both wired and wireless) could quickly slow down and then be stopped because of high demand. In other words, just imagine not being able to reach or get word to your family and friends at the very moment when you most want to do that.

The Office of Residence Life strongly advises that you work with family and friends to make and communicate a specific plan of action that is not dependent upon phone or email contact after an extreme emergency such as terrorist attack or pandemic flu outbreak has occurred.

Make sure the plan you work out with your loved ones is very specific

  • Will you stay in your room or suite, or leave for another destination if classes are being held and the University of Toledo remains open?
  • Where will you go if the University of Toledo stops classes and closes the campus? Will you go to your hometown? Or to the home of a roommate or a nearby off-campus relative or friend?
  • How will you plan to get to your off-campus destination? If your hometown is far from campus, should you purchase an open-ended plane or rail ticket now? Do you have a friend you can travel with? If you have a car, will you offer rides to others who live near your hometown or in that direction? Can you plan ahead to travel with other UT students?
  • What amount of time are you allowing for travel to your destination? Who will be meeting you there?
  • What cash and other resources do you need to keep on hand for emergency travel (helping to pay for gas, bus/rail/plane tickets, food, etc.)
  • What are your back-up plans in the event you cannot travel in the time and manner you have planned?
  • What plans are you making and sharing with your roommate (e.g., staying in touch, securing your room by the last person to leave)?

Plan how you will stay in touch with family and friends

  • Once made, put your plans in writing and make sure all loved ones have copies
  • Keep up a regular pattern of communication with loved ones, so that you always know how to get in touch with them and they with you
  • Designate your emergency contacts (typically family and closest friends) and make sure these people know your emergency plan and have all contact information for yourself and your local friends and roommates
  • Plan an alternate means of communication ("I'll get to ____'s home, and stay there until I can reach you.") in the event electronic communications are disrupted

Be Prepared: What To Keep On Hand <Return to Top>

In extreme emergencies such as icing, extended power outage, illness outbreak, epidemic, etc., University services (e.g., heat, lights, food supplies) may be interrupted or curtailed and routine means of communication with family and friends (e.g., cellular and land line phones, Internet) may be compromised for short (e.g., hours, next day) or extended (e.g., days or weeks) periods of time.

Items we recommend you bring with you on move-in day or obtain once you are on campus:

  • analog touch-tone telephone kept plugged into your room's phone jack
  • battery-powered AM radio, extra batteries, flashlight
  • first aid supplies including band aids, sterile gauze pads and tape, gloves, hydrogen peroxide, antibiotic ointment, pain      relievers, masks
  • extra soap, toilet paper, towels and tissues
  • anti-bacterial (waterless) hand gel
  • cleaning supplies, including mild disinfectants
  • heavy duty gloves
  • small bottle of bleach, plastic bags, duct tape
  • manual can opener

Additional items to keep readily available, in the event you need to leave your room with very little warning:

  • Rocket ID
  • room/suite key(s)
  • cash (small denominations with some in quarters), credit cards (ATMs may not work if regional phone demand is too high),      etc.
  • any prescription or over-the-counter medicines
  • personal items such as cellular phone, glasses, contact lens solution, cherished photos
  • valuables such as laptop and jewelry
  • copies of financial papers, bank account numbers, other important documents
  • hat/cap, sunscreen, insect repellent
  • "go bag" with sturdy shoes, socks, changes of clothing
  • feminine and/or hygiene supplies
  • inventory of belongings left behind in room, especially any valuables

Additional items you should always keep on hand in your room:

  • up to a two-week supply of bottled water
  • up to a two-week supply of non-perishable foods
  • extra supplies of food and other things you like and use the most
  • campus and area maps
  • airtight containers for food
  • a blanket

Crime in Progress <Return to Top>

If you see criminal or suspicious activity

  • Contact University of Toledo Police (UTPD) by dialing x2600 from a University phone or by pre-programming 419-530-2600 into a cellular      phone.
  • Remain calm, and do not make sudden movements.
  • If it is safe to do so, leave the area.

 When the University of Toledo Police dispatcher answers

  • Give your name, your specific location and the nature of the crime in progress or other concerns.
  • Identify help that is needed immediately; report any injuries to yourself or others.
  • If safe to do so, note the suspect's(s') height, weight, age, race, clothing, distinguishing physical characteristics such as facial hair, weapons, and means and direction of travel.
  • If a vehicle is involved, note the license plate number, make and model, color, direction it was heading, and anything else that stands out about the vehicle.
  • Stay on the phone until the dispatcher tells you it is okay to hang up.
  • Stay in your same location, if safe to do so, until the Police arrive.

 Police should be called

  • For situations involving weapons, injury, threat of harm, use of force against another person, coercion, attempted breaking or entering, destruction of property
  • For persons in trouble and needing help
  • For intruders, strangers acting suspiciously, fighting, assault, sexual assault, domestic violence, persons committing a theft or other crime

 What not to do

  • Do not leave your room or other safe area to try to investigate what is happening if you see or hear something
  • Do not assume others have called the Police
  • Do not try to confront, apprehend or interfere with the suspect(s), except to protect yourself

 When you finish talking with Police

  • Dial the phone number for your 24-hour Front Desk of your hall. 
  • Identify yourself and relay the same information you just gave to Police
  • Ask to have a Residence Life duty staff member contacted immediately
  • Try to have someone stay with you until help arrives

 Take reasonable precautions when you go out, especially after dark

  • Have roommate or friends know where you are going and when to expect you to return
  • Get your exercise or run your errands early in the evening, not late
  • Walk or jog/run in groups
  • Carry a cellular phone
  • Stay alert to what's happening around you; report suspicious behavior/activity
  • Plan your route; stay on populated, well-lighted walks
  • Know locations of blue-light Emergency phones

 What not to do, especially after dark

  • Do not walk, jog or run alone
  • Do not separate yourself from friends or a group
  • Stay away from dark or isolated areas
  • Do not take shortcuts through dark areas or places where someone could be hiding
  • Do not wear headphones (distracts you from your surroundings)
  • Do not go out when the use of alcohol, drugs, medications may affect your judgment

Early Warning System <Return to Top>

The campus's Early Warning System is designed to provide instant notification to students, faculty and staff of imminent dangerous conditions. In such an emergency, sirens around campus will repeatedly sound.

If you ever hear the Early Warning siren:

  • Listen closely to the message of the early warning system, as there are several reasons for the early warning system to sound, e.g. tornado, severe weather, active shooter, etc.
  • If you are in your residence hall, stay indoors/in your room and seek information
  • For a tornado early warning, move to the Tornado Shelter area in your hall.
  • If outdoors, seek shelter inside the closest building, unless the early warning system states otherwise
  • Save work on your computer, shut it down & disconnect it from the wall jack
  • Do not pull the fire alarm (which tells people to go outside), unless directed to do so by University staff

 UT Alert

To help curb violence and keep all UT faculty, staff, and students informed of emergencies and/or unsafe incidents on and around UT’s campuses, UT encourages everyone to sign up for UT Alert, via UTPD’s main website: https://www.utoledo.edu/depts/police/. You may have alerts sent to your UT email and/or phone (via a text message).

Emergency Closing of Residence Halls <Return to Top>

Extreme emergencies such as major fire, tornado, extended power outage, epidemic, etc. may require the closing of a building(s), the interruption or suspension of classes, and the relocation of hundreds or thousands of students, whether for a relatively short period (e.g., hours, next day) or for an extended period (e.g., days or weeks).

In a short-duration emergency closing following a fire, storm damage, etc.:

  • Evacuate your building safely upon hearing the fire alarm
  • Check doors for heat before opening. (Do not open door if hot)
  • Close the door as you exit your room and lock it
  • Dress appropriately for the weather
  • Take only essentials with you (e.g., eyeglasses, medications, identification and cash/checkbook/credit cards) - do not pack      belongings
  • Turn off unnecessary equipment, computers and appliances
  • Walk, do not run. Do not push or crowd
  • Keep noise to a minimum so you can hear emergency instructions.
  • Use handrails in stairwells; stay to the right.
  • Assemble with others at your building's adjacent outdoor assembly area (or designated indoor assembly area in the event of      inclement weather)
  • Remain calm
  • Try to locate your roommates, friends and neighbors
  • Await instructions from residence life staff or emergency responders
  • Seek additional instructions from campus sources such as UTPD, Fire and Safety staff, Residence Life staff, the University email system, etc.
  • Return to your building only when told it is safe to do so by emergency responders or residence life staff

If overnight or other short-term accommodations are needed before you can return to your building:

  • You are welcome to make arrangements to stay with friends, but please report such information to a Residence Life staff      member
  • Do not assume it will be possible to return to your room for clothing or other personal items
  • You may be relocated to vacant spaces in other residence halls, depending on availability
  • If temporary shelter is needed for larger numbers of evacuated students, you may be directed to safety in locations such as the Multipurpose Rooms in other halls, the Student Union, Student Recreation Center, or other identifiable space on campus
  • Police, Residence Life and other campus authorities will advise evacuated students of a timetable and procedures, if possible,      for gaining brief access to their rooms to retrieve belongings, check on the status of their rooms, get changes of clothing and toiletries, etc.

If classes are suspended and the campus is closed because of an extreme emergency (e.g., illness outbreak, pandemic flu, extended power outage):

  • You will be expected to activate the personal plan you made for emergency closing and leave the campus within 24-48 hours
  • Seek immediate instructions from campus sources such as UTPD, Fire and Safety staff, Residence Life staff, University email      system, etc. Expect to obtain regular reports and updated information at The University of Toledo website
  • On-campus dining services will be sharply curtailed, then stopped within a matter of a few days
  • Pack and take all belongings from your room, if possible
  • At a minimum, leave campus with all valuables (e.g., ID, cash, credit cards, driver's license, bank statements, passport) and      essential personal possessions you might need during the next several weeks (e.g., medications, clothing, books and class materials, laptop or computer) on the assumption you will not be permitted to return to your room for several weeks or months

Time permitting, the optimal circumstances for your departure from your residence hall when an emergency closing is announced include:

  • Remove all your personal property
  • Take all trash, perishable food, and all unwanted items to an outside dumpster
  • Close and lock doors and windows
  • Return keys to your hall’s Front Desk, if so instructed
  • Be ready to leave as quickly as your ride arrives

If you are not able to fully vacate your room when an emergency closing of your residence hall is announced, at a minimum please assure that within 24-48 hours you:

  • Take your valuables and other important property and any items you may need during the emergency closing; you will not have access to your room during the closing
  • Dispose of perishable food and unplug your refrigerator, leaving its door open
  • Remove trash, recyclables, and debris from your room
  • Leave your bed clean and clear of all belongings
  • Move all personal property off the floor and into your desk, dresser or closet shelves (in case of pipe break, flooding)
  • Unplug all electrical appliances
  • Close and lock doors and windows before you leave
  • Return keys to your hall’s Front Desk, if so instructed

In the aftermath of an emergency closing of residence halls:

  • Keep informed about the University's status and plans for reopening by bookmarking the University's home page www.utoledo.edu, asking your family and friends to do the same, and monitoring media reports
  • Act on your financial contingency plans, including how you will respond to bills that are due, obtain pay that is owed to you by an employer, meet your living expenses, meet any special expenses associated with travel and relocation, etc.
  • During an extreme emergency and at the direction of state or federal authorities, the University may provide temporary lodging for displaced individuals in campus buildings, including the residence halls. Given this potential, it is best that you remove all your property at the time you leave campus. The University can make no guarantees that belongings you leave behind can be relocated to storage.

Loss of Electrical Power <Return to Top>

If electrical power is lost in your residence hall:

  • Call the hall’s front desk; do not assume others have called
  • Stay calm; stay in your room or go to your room or other place where you feel safe and comfortable
  • Turn off and unplug computer, radio, television, refrigerator and all other personal belongings powered by electricity
  • Use a flashlight; Do not light candles or other types of flames for lighting
  • In most situations in residence halls, electrical power should be restored in a matter of minutes or hours
  • When power is restored, check equipment that you unplugged

If a storm is approaching or you have other warning that electrical power could be lost:

  • Inform others (as you see them) of the safest places in your building to move to in the event a storm approaches campus (i.e.,      basement level or interior space within lower floor)
  • Listen to the radio, television news, monitor the National Weather Service for updates, or the campus emergency notification      system
  • Save work on your laptop or personal computer, then shut down your machine and disconnect it from the wall jack
  • Keep a flashlight handy
  • Unplug radio, appliances, television, etc. to avoid power surge problems
  • Avoid use of elevators (avoids being trapped in the event loss of electrical power shuts off the elevator)
  • Stay away from windows and glass

Medical Emergency <Return to Top>

In the event of an injury, illness or other medical emergency, dial X2600 from a University phone or pre-program 419-530-2600 into a cellular phone.

When the University of Toledo Police dispatcher answers:

  • Identify your specific location
  • Describe what has happened, and type of injury or illness or nature of medical emergency
  • Identify help that is needed immediately
  • Stay on the phone until the dispatcher tells you it's okay to hang up
  • Stay in your same location, if safe to do so, until help arrives

University of Toledo Police will respond to the scene and, if warranted, will summon EMTs and an ambulance.

When you finish talking with Police:

  • Dial the phone number for your hall’s Front Desk.  Identify yourself and relate the same information you just gave to Police
  • Ask to have a Residence Life duty staff member contacted immediately
  • Have someone stay with you until help arrives

For a less serious medical problem, please call or go to the University Medical Center or a local hospital.  Read more information about the University Medical Center

Suspicious Package or Mail <Return to Top>

If you see or receive an unexpected letter or package that looks suspicious:

  • Call x2600 from campus phone or 419-530-2600 from a cellular phone
  • Do not touch the item or disturb it in any way; do not open, smell or taste it
  • If you inadvertently pick up the item and first become suspicious at that point, carefully set the item down, ideally in an      isolated location
  • Call University Police at x2600 or 419-530-2600 from a cellular phone
  • Stay away from the item, and keep others away from it

When the University of Toledo Police dispatcher answers your call:

  • Identify your specific location
  • Describe the letter or package and explain why it looks suspicious to you
  • Stay on the phone until the dispatcher tells you it’s okay to hang up
  • Move away from the item, wait there, and identify yourself to Police when officers arrive

Signs of a potentially suspicious letter or package:

  • No return address, restrictive marking such as “Personal” or “Special Delivery”
  • Excessive postage, tape or string; possibly mailed from another country
  • Misspelled words, badly typed or written, name doesn’t match address
  • Package or letter is lopsided or uneven, wire protrudes from it
  • Package or letter has strange smell or has oily stains, discoloration or crystallization

All reports of suspicious mail and packages are taken very seriously and are investigated thoroughly.

Evacuation of persons needing assistance <Return to Top>

In the event of an emergency situation, the Office of Residence Life wants staff and students to be as prepared as possible. For those that may need assistance during an emergency situation (e.g. a fire alarm, fire, building evacuation, etc.), the Office of Residence Life recommends signing up for the RAVE Guardian App, via your cell phone. In the event of an emergency, and you are unable to easily exit the residence hall and/or need assistance, the RAVE Guardian App will assist you in contacting UTPD for assistance. This App allows users to create a personal profile, input any accessibility needs that can be shared with UTPD, public safety, and/or medical staff in the event of an emergency, and notify UTPD if and when the user needs actual assistance during an emergency situation.

In addition, you may contact the Hall Director of your residence hall to develop an individual plan for assistance during an emergency situation. If this is something you are interested in pursuing, please contact your front desk and ask to speak directly with your Hall Director.

Ground Floor:

On a ground-level floor, persons with physical disabilities should evacuate via accessible exits along with the other occupants of the building.

Above or Below Ground Floors:

Visual Impairments

Persons with visual impairments may be familiar with their immediate surroundings.  However, in the event of an emergency, and you are unable to easily exit the residence hall and/or need assistance, the RAVE Guardian App will assist you in contacting UTPD for assistance. In addition, you may contact the Hall Director of your residence hall to develop an individual plan for assistance during an emergency situation.

Deaf/Hard of Hearing

Deaf/hard of hearing persons may or may not perceive audible emergency alarms, but should be alerted by the flashing of strobes. In the event of an emergency, and you are unable to easily exit the residence hall and/or need assistance, the RAVE Guardian App will assist you in contacting UTPD for assistance. In addition, you may contact the Hall Director of your residence hall to develop an individual plan for assistance during an emergency situation.

Mobility Impairments

Since elevators should not be used for evacuation during a fire alarm, persons with mobility impairments may need assistance in evacuating unless they are on a ground floor with accessible exits. As persons with mobility impairments have varying degrees of limitations, information is offered for two possible scenarios: ambulatory and non-ambulatory impairments.

Ambulatory Mobility Impairments

Persons with mobility impairments who are able to walk independently, either with or without the use of crutches, walker or a cane, may be able to negotiate stairs with minor assistance in an emergency situation. Even some persons who customarily use a wheelchair or scooter for long distance travel may be able to walk independently in an emergency situation. If you are able to walk up or down stairs, it is advisable that you wait until the heavy traffic has cleared before attempting to evacuate. If you are not able to walk up or down stairs, you are advised to shelter in place and utilize UTPD for assistance. In the event of an emergency, and you are unable to easily exit the residence hall and/or need assistance, the RAVE Guardian App will assist you in contacting UTPD for assistance. In addition, you may contact the Hall Director of your residence hall to develop an individual plan for assistance during an emergency situation.

Non-Ambulatory Mobility Impairments

In keeping with current philosophy and preference to "shelter in place," wheelchair users should “shelter in place” in their current bedroom/suite until qualified personnel arrives to assist in their evacuation. In the event of an emergency, and you are unable to easily exit the residence hall and/or need assistance, the RAVE Guardian App will assist you in contacting UTPD for assistance. In addition, you may contact the Hall Director of your residence hall to develop an individual plan for assistance during an emergency situation.

If you are away from your room/suite, and are able to exit the building on your own, you should do so.  If you encounter stairs or otherwise cannot exit the building on their own, wheelchair users should shelter in place and contact UTPD at x2600 for assistance. If you have an account with the RAVE Guardian App, you may also utilize the app to contact UTPD directly, should you need assistance.

NOTE: UT staff acknowledges that the person needing assistance is the best authority on how to be moved.

Bomb Threat <Return to Top>

  1. During a Bomb Threat situation, Residents should…
  • Remain calm.
  • Adhere to instructions provided by UT staff.

II. General Rules When a Suspicious Object is Found

  • In the event a bomb or suspicious condition is found, call UTPD at x2600 or 419-530-2600.
  • DO NOT
    • Attempt to touch or move a suspicious object.
    • Remove materials which may aid in the investigation of the crime.
    • Smoke in the vicinity of a suspected bomb.
    • Accept markings, names, etc., as being legitimate. Explosives can be put in any type container. Bombs are usually camouflaged in some way to prevent detecting them before the explosion.

Fire Alarm <Return to Top>

When a fire alarm is activated, residents should vacate the residence hall immediately, by the nearest possible exit, for their own safety.

Stand at least 100 feet away from the residence hall or otherwise instructed by UT staff.

Wait until you receive an all clear from UTPD and/or UT staff, before entering back into the residence hall.
