Emergency Procedures

Inclement Weather

UCAR makes every reasonable effort to keep its facilities at all sites in operation. However, UCAR maintains procedures for closing its facilities, if necessary, in times of inclement or severe weather. These procedures are designed to insure the safety of UCAR employees and visitors, protect UCAR property, and make possible the reopening of UCAR sites at the earliest feasible time.


Each UCAR facility is equipped with alarms that sound when smoke or heat are detected or when sprinkler waters flow. All employees and visitors must leave the building when evacuation alarms sound.

Medical Emergencies

Call x911 for medical assistance. Your 911 call will be answered by the Mesa Lab security/front desk, which is staffed 24/7. When you call, state the nature of the emergency and where the injured or ill person is located (building and room number). Security/front desk staff will immediately notify city emergency dispatch, send a security officer to the scene, and prepare to escort emergency responders to the location.
