Evacuation Procedure

Be Prepared

  • Understand the evacuation plan. 
  • Know that evacuation diagrams are conspicuously posted in every classroom. 
  • Know at least two ways out of the building from your regular workspace.

When You Hear the Evacuation Alarm Or Are Verbally Told To Begin Evacuating The Building:

  • Remain calm. 
  • Leave quickly. 
  • Try to make sure that everyone in your immediate vicinity hears the alarm and evacuates the area. 
  • As you exit, quickly check nearby restrooms, copier rooms, storage rooms, elevators, etc. 
  • If requested, accompany and assist persons with disabilities who appear to need direction or assistance. 
  • Take with you:  essential personal items ONLY.  Do not attempt to take large or heavy objects. 
  • Shut all doors behind you as you go.  Closed doors can slow the spread of fire, smoke and water. 
  • Proceed as quickly as possible but in an orderly manner.  Do not push or shove.  Hold handrails when you are using stairs. 
  • Once out of the building, move away at least 100 feet from the structure or as instructed by Campus Security, Police or Fire Department officials and conduct a headcount of your evacuees.
