Evacuation Basics

  • Identify the closest and alternate emergency exits.
  • During an evacuation, avoid elevators. Stay to the right on staircases, leaving space for emergency personnel.
  • Find your building assembly point, where a manager will take attendance to identify missing people.
  • Learn how to assist the disabled during an emergency.
  • Unless there is a life threatening condition such as a fire, make sure it is safe to evacuate a building prior to pulling an alarm. Hazards such as falling debris after an earthquake may make it safer to stay indoors.
