Emergencies and Problems: A Procedures Manual for Trinity University Library.
Pettit, Katherine D.
The first of six sections in this manual outlines a series of steps to be followed when an emergency or problem occurs. These procedures are divided into four categories: (1) behavioral emergencies, i.e., bomb threats, building takeover, problem patrons, or thefts; (2) building emergencies, i.e., elevator failure, fire, flooding of building/water leaks, power failure; (3) medical emergencies, i.e., animal bites, death, drug or psychiatric problems, or fumes (possibly toxic); and (4) weather emergencies, i.e., heavy rain/icy conditions or tornados. Sources of assistance are listed in the second section under emergency organizations, which include emergency medical services, the fire department, hospitals, the infirmary, and security. Library floor plans in the third section indicate the location of fire alarms, fire extinguishers, and fire stairs. The remaining sections provide a listing of members of the Library Executive Council with their home and office telephone numbers, a telephone directory of library administrators and emergency services, and a key word index to the manual.
