Emergency Procedures
. Southern Illinois University Carbondale is
committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for study and
work. Because some health and safety circumstances are beyond our


control, we ask that you become familiar with th
e SIUC Emergency
Response Plan and Building Emergency Response Team (BERT) program.
Emergency response information is available on posters in buildings
on campus, available on BERT's website at www.bert.siu.edu,
Department of Safety's website www.dps.siu.
edu (disaster drop down)
and in Emergency Response Guideline pamphlet. Know how to respond to
each type of emergency.

Instructors will provide guidance to students
in the classroom in the event of an emergency affecting your
location. It is important tha
t you follow these instructions and
stay with your instructor during an evacuation or sheltering
emergency. The Building Emergency Response Team will provide
assistance to your instructor in evacuating the building or
sheltering within the facility.
