R-A-C-E

Faculty, staff, students, and non-campus workers should all react to emergencies in the same manner. VCSU has created an acronym that will help the campus population react efficiently during an emergency.

Follow the response plan of RACE:

  • R- RECEIVE: Receive, retrieve, relay and react to the emergency message or alarm.
  • A- ALERT: Alert others and assist those in need. Use fire alarm ONLY during a fire.
  • C- CONFINE: Confine the situation by closing all doors and windows.
  • E- EVACUATE: Evacuate everyone to a designated location if instructed. Area emergency services will arrive shortly.
