Building Evacuation Procedures

or totally evacuated. Under partial evacuation, occupants may be asked
to relocate to another portion of the building that is deemed safer,

Complete evacuation will result in all persons leaving the building
and moving to a designated assembly area, or a location at least 500
feet from the building.

with an evacuation request, and to assist others to the designated
assembly area. A building should be evacuated when: a fire has been

assemble at a safe distance outdoors (generally 500 feet from the
building), weather permitting. In the event of inclement weather, inside assembly areas will be announced at the time of the evacuation.
