Evacuation Procedure

Evacuation Procedure

Be Prepared:
By the exit door of campus rooms or offices there should be evacuation maps and instructions. (If not, call facilities at x7670). Become familiar with the posting and follow the instructions. Locate and become familiar with the nearest fire alarm pull station.

In the event of an evacuation order, a member of the emergency management team or an evacuation assistant will direct you to a designated Emergency Assembly Area (EAA). All building occupants including both commuter and residential students should report to the EAA until cleared to leave campus, return to residence halls or return to the evacuated building. In all cases, fire/emergency access lanes into and out of campus and individual buildings MUST remain free of traffic or congestion.

Alert Others:
If you are the person that detects the emergency you should verbally warn others in the area, go to the nearest pull station, pull the lever, leave the building and call 911 from a safe place. (9, 911 from a campus phone.)

Use of Emergency Equipment:
Do not use any fire extinguisher and do not re-enter the building until the Fire or Police department or an emergency management team member has indicated it is safe to return. Only individuals who are specifically trained should use emergency equipment.

For Further Information:
Contact your supervisor or call Facilities Management at 834-7670.
