Evacuation Procedures for Building Occupants

  • When the fire alarm sounds, all personnel should ensure that nearby personnel are aware of the emergency, quickly shutdown operating equipment (e.g., compressed gas cylinders), close doors and exit the building using stairwells.
  • All occupants should proceed to their Evacuation Assembly Area and await further instructions from their Building Marshal, Classroom Faculty, and Other Supervisory Building Occupants.
  • All personnel should know where primary and alternate exits are located, and be familiar with the various evacuation routes available. Maps with the Emergency Assembly Points are located in the Attachments section of this plan and are posted in the buildings.
  • Building occupants must NOT use elevators as an escape route in the event of a fire.
