UMUC has several warning devices in place that will alert and announce procedures to its employees in the event of a fire, natural disaster and other emergency.
In the event of a fire or in any emergency situation where a full evacuation of a building is necessary the fire alarm will sound. If the fire alarm sounds, all employees must immediately and orderly exit the building via the nearest stairwell and proceed outside to the east side (facing the UMD Campus) of the building and wait for further instructions.
In the event of a natural disaster or other emergency situation where a full-scale evacuation is not recommended, but an urgent alert and message must be conveyed to the employees or UMUC community, the Public Address System and UMUC MyAlerts (text messaging service) will be utilized. Important procedures and precautions will be announced through these systems.
The Security Department is located in the Inn and Conference Center building near the West Main Entrance and the Oracle Lounge.
Department Managers/Supervisors or assigned Security Liaisons must officially request keys for their staff through the Security Department. ID Badge and Electronic Key Card requests can be made via e-mail to email@example.com or by calling x6706. New employees will receive their badges and key cards at orientation.
Building access is controlled by the Security Department. If you have lost or forgotten your key, call Security at x7371 for access. Please be prepared to show identification and authorization for access to the office or room you are requesting to have opened.
