Building Emergencies

Typical building emergencies include loss of power, loss of water and floods. These emergencies impact operations in many ways. Contact Public Safety at 215-895-2222 if any of these events occur. 

Losing power to the building impacts the lighting, laboratory equipment, and ventilation system. Building operation will be suspended until power is restored. All laboratory operations must stop. Laboratory personnel must evacuate the laboratory and possibly the building.

Losing water impacts rest rooms, safety showers, eyewash stations, and operations that require water for cooling. All laboratory operation must stop until water service is restored. 

Floods impact equipment and building materials. Flood may also cause the spread of hazard material from space to space. Stay out of the operation if a flood is observed. Floods are all serious emergencies that must be immediately reported to Public Safety at 215-895-2222 then to the site security to ensure proper response.
