Building Evacuation

Building Evacuation

If a fire alarm sounds or if asked to evacuate, leave the building immediately

The purpose of evacuating a building is to remove the occupants from dangerous and potentially life-threatening conditions presented by:

  • A fire
  • A suspected explosive device
  • A hazardous material release
  • Air contamination
  • Active shooter
  • Other life-threatening situation

When evacuating a building:

  • Remain calm
  • Proceed to the nearest safe exit
  • Do not use the elevators
  • Assist disabled persons – if the person cannot be moved to the exit, ask the person to remain at that location, leave the building, and advise a firefighter or police officer of the person’s location
  • Once outside, stay at least 300 feet from the building
  • Once outside, do not return until authorities give the "all clear"
