Suspicious Parcel or Substance

The individual discovering the package or substance should immediately contact Campus Security and wash hands for 30 seconds with soap and water. If Campus Security requires a building evacuation, all building occupants should remain outside until notified otherwise. Persons who were in the immediate vicinity of the parcel/substance should remain separated from the rest of the occupants.

Campus Security/Emergency Personnel will possibly need to know:

  • Who was in the room with the parcel/substance?
  • Who touched the parcel/substance?
  • Was the package opened and, if so, what happened when it was opened?
