Building Evacuation

A building evacuation goes into e­ffect in the event of a fire or other emergency that requires all occupants to immediately leave the building to ensure their safety.

Action (Get Out!)

On an annual basis, familiarize yourself with emergency stairwells, exit routes, and the designated Evacuation Assembly Area for your primary building, as well as for all buildings that you frequent. Review section to the “Floor Coordinators”  for more information. Evacuations are mandatory for fire alarms and when directed by authorities. No Exceptions!

Signals: A building evacuation will be signaled by the building fire alarm, including strobe lights, audible alerts, and/or other means of emergency notification (e.g., UIC ALERT or other notifications by first response agencies).
