General Evacuation Procedure


In the event of an emergency situation requiring evacuation, designated campus officials will begin a floor-by-floor evacuation of each affected building from the top down. Students, faculty, staff and visitors are instructed to leave personal belongings and evacuate the building quickly.

General evacuation guidelines and best practices:

  • Building management will provide information and instructions via the emergency speaker system throughout the building.
  • Do not use elevators.
  • Do not bring food or drink with you and/or into any stairwell.
  • Do not break windows.
  • Always stay to the right within the stairwell to allow emergency personnel to pass.
  • If applicable, fire escapes should be used as a last resort.
