When it is necessary to evacuate a building due to a fire alarm or other emergency, it is critical that all occupants are able to do so in a timely manner. This requires a clear and unobstructed path to the building exterior (see Corridor Use Exemption form - Word) and a plan known and executed by all occupants.
All University employees and students should be aware of emergency evacuation procedures. The Environmental Health and Safety Office has developed general emergency evacuation procedures, and each department should supplement these procedures with departmental specific information. These procedures should be posted in every department and distributed to all building occupants.
For more information, please review APM 35.21: Fire Emergencies and Response and APM 35.22: Emergency Evacuation Procedures.
