  • Do NOT attempt to correct the problem.
  • Provide assistance to others in your immediate area who may be unfamiliar with the building.
  • Do not enter mechanical or electrical rooms under any circumstances.
  • Stay clear of downed power lines.
  • Turn off equipment such as computers and monitors to avoid potential damage once power is restored.
  • If you are in a dark area, proceed cautiously to an area that has emergency lights.
