Power Outage


Departments should have flashlights available that are tested periodically to assure that they work.

In the event of a power outage in your building, initiate the following:

  • Remain Calm
  • Between the hours of 7:30 A.M. and 5 P.M., call Facilities Maintenance at ext. 3232. After 5:00 P.M., call YSU Police at ext. 3527.
  • If you have a flashlight, go to an area of the building that is lighted or has emergency lighting.
  • Provide assistance to those in your area who do not have a flashlight and/or may be unfamiliar with the area.
  • Remain calm. In most instances power will be restored in a short matter of time. However, if you are instructed to evacuate the building, proceed cautiously to the nearest exit.

Note: Individuals with disabilities may need assistance.

Exit signs are on emergency power and should remain lit during an outage.
