Evacuation Procedures:

  • Remain CALM. Walk, do not run.
  • Do not use elevators! Use stairwells to exit.
  • If you are in an elevator when the alarm sounds, do not push the “emergency stop” button.
  • Do not talk and listen carefully for specific evacuation instructions.
  • If possible, assist persons with disabilities who appear to need direction or assistance.
  • Do not take personal items with you and close doors behind you.
  • If leaving a room, feel the door with the back of your hand before opening it and do not open any door that feels hot.
  • If smoke is present, stay low. The best air quality is near the floor.
  • Never evacuate up.
  • Move quickly to your company-designated assembly area and check in with your Floor Warden. Assist with determining if all persons from your area are accounted for.
  • Return to the building only when instructed by Police or Fire Department officials.

General Evacuation Conduct:

  • Move quickly, but do not run.
  • Remove high-heeled shoes if necessary.
  • Use handrails and move to the right when emergency responders are encountered.
  • Allow room for others, but do not unnecessarily hold up travel.
  • Assist those who are slower moving or disabled.
