What does it mean to Shelter-in-Place?*
You may be instructed to shelter-in-place in the event of a hazardous materials release. Chemical, biological, or radiological contaminants may be released accidentally or intentionally into the environment. If this occurs, students, faculty, staff, and visitors will be advised to shelter-in-place via GoldAlert. It means to choose a small, interior room, with no or few windows, and taking shelter there.
