Shelter-in-place means to stay where you are to avoid possible danger outside. You could be directed to shelter-in-place in the event of severe weather, hazardous material release, a suspicious intruder or hostage situation.
Keep students in class or in their dorm rooms until authorities give the all-clear signal. Stay away from windows, doors and outside walls.
Authorities may not be able to provide information about what is happening immediately. Seek information at www.clemson.edu/cusafety or via Inside Alerts as it becomes available.
In the event of severe weather, basements generally offer the best protection. Otherwise go into an interior room or hallway on the lowest floor possible.
In the event of an intruder, secure doors and seek concealment away from windows and doors. Turn off the lights and close the blinds if the room is so equipped.
Account for everyone who arrives in the shelter.
Stay in the shelter location until you receive an all-clear message from authorities.
