I. HEALTH and SAFETY – CALL or TEXT 911
For life and facility threatening emergencies, call or text 911 and inform dispatch about location and type of emergency. Next, if you are able, inform the Administration Office in Barclay Classroom Building during office hours or Ian Billick in Barclay Cabin after hours.
If appropriate, raise an alarm: a good strategy is to find the nearest car and honk its horn. There are fire extinguishers and smoke alarms in every building, and escape ladders on all second floors. In case of fire, exit the building immediately, and try to raise an alarm.
Phones in Gothic: Please try your neighbor in nearby cabins first.
Other phones are located:
- Barclay Building, Administrative Office
- Willey Building- First floor, East entry, first door on the left
- The Visitors Center, 10 AM-4 PM daily (June-September)
- billy barr community center board room or commercial kitchen (6 AM – 10 PM)
