Building Evacuation

BUILDING EVACUATION
Building evacuation will occur upon notification by University Police or other authority.

Be aware of all marked exits and evacuation routes from your area of the building. Know the evacuation routes from your classroom or work area.

When officially told to evacuate, leave by the nearest exit and alert others to do the same.

Do not use elevators in case of fire.

If the emergency is other than fire, persons with diabilities have priority using the elevators for evacuation.

Assist the disabled in exiting the building.

Once outside, move to the assembly point designated for your building. Stay there until an accurate head count has been taken.

Keep streets and walkways next to exits clear for emergency vehicles and personnel. Keep the street side of buildings clear so that emergency equipment and personnel can reach buildings.

An Emergency Command Post may be set up near the emergency site. Keep clear of this area unless you have important information to report.

Do not return to an evacuated building until directed to do so by University Police, Fire Department, or other authority.
