Moving into a hallway or interior classroom or lab that does not have any windows is the correct answer because it provides a more secure and protected space. This helps to minimize the risk of injury from flying debris or shattered glass, which can occur during a tornado. It is crucial to stay away from windows and seek shelter in an area with sturdy walls and no windows to ensure the highest level of safety.

    Explanation
    Activating the nearest fire alarm in the event of an armed intruder on campus would not be the appropriate response. Fire alarms are designed to alert people in the event of a fire and activating them during a potential threat would cause unnecessary panic and confusion. Instead, individuals should follow the established protocols for dealing with an armed intruder, such as seeking shelter, locking doors, and contacting the authorities.

      All the above

    Explanation
    Both situations A and C would warrant a direct call to 911 first. A person possibly having a heart attack is a medical emergency that requires immediate attention, as it can be life-threatening. Similarly, an armed intruder inside your building is a dangerous situation that requires immediate intervention from law enforcement. Therefore, both of these situations necessitate calling 911 as the first course of action.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    • D.

      Do not worry about the smell and contact no one

    Correct Answer
    B. Call 111 or the switchboard operator and/ or Campus Police
    Explanation
    If you smell a gas odor similar to rotten eggs, it is important to take immediate action to ensure your safety. Calling 111 or the switchboard operator and/or Campus Police is the correct answer because they are trained to handle emergency situations and can provide guidance on how to proceed. They can help assess the situation, evacuate if necessary, and contact the appropriate authorities to address the gas leak. Investigating the source of the smell on your own can be dangerous and should be left to professionals. Ignoring the smell and not contacting anyone can put yourself and others at risk.

      A person that has a minor burn on their finger

      A person that is stating that they are dizzy and light headed

      A person passed out, unresponsive

    Correct Answer
    B. A person that has a minor burn on their finger
    Explanation
    A person that has a minor burn on their finger is an example of a non-life threatening situation because a minor burn is typically not severe enough to cause significant harm or danger to the person's life. While it may be painful and require some first aid treatment, it is unlikely to result in any life-threatening complications.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    In the event of a bomb threat, all persons are to be away from college buildings at least:

    • A.

      50 feet

    • B.

      150 feet

    • C.

      400 feet

    • D.

      500 feet

    Correct Answer
    D. 500 feet
    Explanation
    In the event of a bomb threat, it is necessary for all persons to be at least 500 feet away from college buildings. This distance is important to ensure the safety of individuals in case of an explosion. Being at a significant distance from the building reduces the risk of being injured by debris or the impact of the blast. It also allows emergency responders to access the area more easily and carry out necessary evacuation or bomb disposal procedures. Therefore, 500 feet is the appropriate distance to maintain during a bomb threat.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Your personal safety and security is the responsibility of whom? 

    • A.

      The college president

    • B.

      Your immediate supervisor

    • C.

      Yourself

    • D.

      Campus Police

    Correct Answer
    C. Yourself
    Explanation
    Personal safety and security are ultimately the responsibility of each individual. While it is important for institutions like colleges and workplaces to provide a safe environment, it is up to each person to take necessary precautions and make informed decisions to ensure their own safety. Relying solely on others, such as the college president, immediate supervisor, or campus police, may not always be sufficient or feasible in every situation. Therefore, it is essential for individuals to prioritize their own safety and take necessary measures to protect themselves.

    Rate this question:

  • 19.

      Campus Police

      Your supervisor

    • C.

      The switchboard operator

    • D.

      Any of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Campus Police
    Explanation
    If there are safety and security concerns on campus, the appropriate authority to be notified would be the Campus Police. They are specifically trained and equipped to handle such situations and ensure the safety of the campus community. Notifying your supervisor or the switchboard operator may not be as effective in addressing immediate safety concerns. Therefore, the Campus Police is the most appropriate option to handle safety and security issues on campus.

    • D.

      211 for both campuses
