Emergency Procedures: Building Evacuations

Building Evacuation 788-6666

  • Evacuate a building when you hear an alarm or are ordered to by authorized person.
  • Be aware of the evacuation plan posted in your building. When the alarm sounds or you are otherwise directed to evacuate, leave by the nearest exit.
  • If you are the last one out of a room, shut the door. (In case of a fire, this limits the spread of smoke or fire.)
  • Do not use elevators in case of earthquake or fire.
  • During an emergency evacuation, it is preferable for someone to remain with and assist a non-ambulatory person if they can do so without endangering their own life. If means to evacuate are not available, shelter in place and await rescue.
  • Once outside, move at least 300 feet from the building.  If possible, assemble at your department’s pre-determined meeting site. (This will help your departmental emergency coordinator determine if everyone is out of the building.)
  • Avoid blocking sidewalks, hydrants, streets, and fire lanes. Emergency vehicles must have clear access.
  • Do not reenter the building unless told to do so by a CSO.
