Emergency Evacuation Guidelines

In non-fire emergencies, a decision to evacuate will be based on the available information; i.e. the specific threat, time of day, location, etc. and the recommendation of the Campus Emergency Response Team.

When a building is ordered to be evacuated for any reason, occupants will be instructed to follow specific life safety guidelines, not to use elevators and to evacuate by the nearest, safest point of egress. Occupants will be instructed to exit the building and proceed to a pre-designated evacuation area or rally point as identified in the Campus Emergency Response Plan. Campus Safety Officers and college staff all have responsibilities during an evacuation including assisting those with disabilities. The College's emergency response and evacuation procedures will be tested annually as determined by the Chief of Safety or his/her designee.
