- Upon hearing the bell alarm system, immediately evacuate the building in an orderly manner, using the designated evacuation routes and stairwell exits. When exiting, avoid crowding or undue haste. A fall might spell disaster for those who follow. Descend the stairs carefully. When you reach the ground floor, exit in an orderly fashion. Do not run! Do not use elevators! Do not call engineering office or lobby desk! If the alarm is found to be false, you will be notified immediately.
- Personnel in the lower levels or garage should take the stairway up the Lobby or walk up the garage ramp to exit. Do not use elevators!
- All handicapped personnel will be assigned an aide to help them evacuate the building or obtain assistance for them. Floor monitors should notify the Engineer and Management of all handicapped persons and persons who may require assistance (e.g. pregnant employees, employees in casts, employees recovering from a recent illness, etc.) so that we can account for these employees after the building is evacuated or notify a fire fighter of their locations in the building.
The handicapped employee or a person needing assistance is to remain in the stairwell, if he/she requires a trained fire fighter to carry him/her down the stairs and out of the building. The aide should notify the fire fighters of locations of all persons requiring assistance in stairwells.
When out of the building, employees should remain on sidewalk and stay clear or the building entrance to allow access by fire department personnel.
