Utility Failure

Power failure procedures

If there is a power outage, employees should call the University Safety Dispatch (417-836-5509) or the Work Management Center (417-836-8400).

Give the following information: 

  • Name and telephone number 
  • Exact location of the utility failure (building, floor, room number, nature of the problem, person making the call and extension) 

Evacuation during a power outage 

Evacuate while emergency lights are on during a power failure, if there is no natural light. Do not reenter the building until there is power. 

Emergency lighting is temporary and is not provided to continue building operations.
