If there is an ongoing hazard or criminal threat in the neighbourhood or an incident that has occurred near a NAIT campus, you may be instructed to secure yourself within a NAIT building because it is safer to be inside as emergency services addresses the situation.

If you are asked to hold and secure:

  • Enter a NAIT building and remain indoors
  • Ensure the doors and windows are locked
  • Continue your regular work and learning activities, unless directed otherwise
  • Stay indoors until the "all clear" is given

Our emergency warden program trains all NAIT staff how to evacuate which is an essential part of NAIT’s emergency response. Follow any NAIT staff member’s directions, as they are knowledgeable and are trained to guide the NAIT community to safety.

If you hear or witness any kind of activity that may be a risk to the NAIT community, call NAIT Protective Services at 780.471.7477.
