For the protection of all faculty, staff and students, it is important to understand what to do in the event of an emergency that requires evacuation. Most evacuations will take you outside and away from the building or structure that poses an actual or perceived safety threat. However, some evacuations may be to a safer location inside the same building.

Evacuation procedures

All building occupants should immediately make their way toward the nearest exit and adhere to the following procedures:

  • Call 911 (once you are safely outside).
  • Remain calm.
  • Move quickly and calmly to the nearest emergency exit.
  • Close doors and leave them unlocked, if possible.
  • Do not use elevators.
  • Do not run, push or shove when descending the emergency exit stairwell. Descend stairs two abreast with arms linked. Be sure to grasp the handrail with your free hand.
  • Use a minimum of conversation to allow authorities and emergency first responders to communicate over you.
  • Use an established evacuation route and meet at the designated assembly area(s). Do not congregate in the building’s entrance.
  • Assign a staff member whose responsibility will be to account for all persons in their designated area.
  • Do not return to the building until an official all clear is given
