In the event that on-duty personnel are not sufficient to handle an influenza related emergency and an emergency mobilization of department personnel is required, the on-call supervisor shall assign someone (not the public safety radio communication officer) to use predetermined calling lists to contact department personnel. This person shall inform department personnel of: Primary and alternative staging location; routes to take and where to park privately owned vehicles; and any other information deemed important by the incident supervisor. If there is no telephone service available, essential personnel will respond directly to the department upon learning of the incident from other sources (i.e., media).
All available officers shall be assigned to uniformed patrol duties and shall remain available for response to high priority calls for service and/or influenza related activities.
The Communications Sections will continue to follow established procedures regarding the evaluation and dispatch of all in-coming high priority (emergency) calls for service from the campus community. Calls for service that are of a non-emergency nature and do not require the immediate presence of a police officer shall be designated for call back response. Typical calls that would fall in this category include:
- Private property (parking lots) vehicle collisions with no injuries
- Animal control calls unless there is an indications of sickness (i.e., rabies), abuse, or the animal has bitten someone.
- Bicycle thefts (not in progress)
- Theft (not in progress)
- Criminal damage (not in progress)
- Criminal damage/graffiti unless there is an indication it may be hate related
- Fraud (not in progress)
- Public assists unless public safety is jeopardized
