Disasters

In the event of a disaster requiring emergency treatment of the injured, responding Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel will designate an emergency treatment area in each building. OU Police personnel and/or Graham Health Center  personnel should administer treatment until EMS units arrive. An OU police officer, or designated person, will meet and direct the responding EMS vehicle(s) to the scene of the injury and/or disaster.

  • Treatment Areas – EMS personnel are trained to designate areas appropriate for treatment of injuries resulting from disaster. Treatment areas should be large and easily accessible, such as gymnasiums, conference rooms or wide hallways.
  • Campus medical equipment locations:
    • OU Police squad cars (first aid kit and blanket)
    • Laboratories on campus which handle especially high risk chemicals
    • Graham Health Center
