I just received the message below from my Dean
I would have thought that there were gas sensors in place and that would alarm in the event of a leak and that at the very least the building should be evacuated????
Can anyone help me on this
"Last week, we met with Emergency Management about the standard operating procedure for someone that smells gas in a classroom. The following should be followed:1) If gas is smelled in the classroom, and the gas burners are not in operation, get the students out of the classroom immediately. They should be moved to the hallway, with the classroom door being closed behind everyone.2) Go to the classroom next door, pick up the classroom phone and let the police dispatcher know of the gas smell and the classroom number (remember that you are calling from a different classroom).3) The police dispatch will alert facilities and if necessary, the fire department.4) The faculty will then wait in the hallway with the students while facilities investigates and resolves any issues."
