Hold and Secure

A Hold and Secure is used to protect persons in the event of an ongoing situation OFF CAMPUS. Most normal operations and activities inside the building can continue. Movement into and out of the building may be restricted by the emergency situation. Notification of a Hold and Secure Order will be issued through U of G ALERT Ridgetown Campus, the University emergency notification system.

If instructed to hold and secure:

  • If you are outdoors - proceed to an indoor location -- eg., classroom or office
  • Exterior doors will be locked if possible - preventing entry, and people inside need to remain there
  • Close any blinds or curtains on exterior windows
  • Normal operations may continue inside the building
  • If you are directed by police to leave your building, their advice (safe exit routes and timing) will be acted upon
