Evacuation Guidelines

  • Secure any hazardous materials or equipment before leaving.
  • Gather valuable personal belongings with you (keys, purses, wallets, etc.)
  • Evacuate the building using the nearest exit.
  • If you encounter smoke or an exit is blocked, try another escape route.
  • If you have to escape through smoke, crawl on your hands and knees and keep your head low where the air is cleaner.
  • Always use stairs instead of elevators.
  • Follow directions given by evacuation wardens.
  • Go to Evacuation Assembly Point (EAP) designated in your building's evacuation plan and on building emergency evacuation signs.
  • Report in and notify emergency personnel if anyone is trapped or injured inside.
  • Assist persons with disabilities (see guidelines for evacuation options).
