In an emergency it is important to remember three important things: do not take unnecessary risks, there is no substitute for remaining calm, and always use common sense.
In an emergency, call 911 (9-911 when using a campus phone) and Campus Safety (extension 72000 or 909-607-2000).
Lockdown/shelter in place or evacuate
If someone is seen on campus with a weapon or gunshots are heard you may need to make an immediate decision to “lockdown/shelter in place” or move to a safer location. Use common sense and available information to assess the situation. Do not confront the individual.
Depending on the circumstances, and/or if you received a Scripps Alert calling for lockdown/shelter in place:
For those who may be outdoors, aside from being notified by phone, email or text message, you will also receive notification via the broadcast speakers.
Depending on the circumstances, there may be situations when you need to evacuate quickly to ensure your safety, do so and alert others in your area if possible.
When calling 911 or Campus Safety report the following:
Do not leave the safe room. The Claremont Police Department, Scripps Maintenance Staff, Campus Safety or other College personnel will unlock the door to the room you are in and notify you that the emergency has passed. The College will also notify you by broadcast speakers, phone, email and/or text message.
