Emergency Procedures

In the event of a spill or loss of control of biological, chemical, or radioactive material, immediately contain as much of the material as possible. If there is fire or injury, dial 911 or call EVMS Police and Public Safety (446-5911) and inform them of the situation.

Once immediate steps have been taken, warn others in the area and take initial action as described below. Assistance is available from Environmental Health & Safety staff and Security.
