Building Evacuation Procedures 

Exit sign 
  • Sector leaders will assist with building evacuation and follow their respective campus Sector Leader Evacuation Procedures.
  • Do not use elevators.
  • Orderly but rapid movement of people is imperative. If safety permits, close doors to evacuated rooms and leave the lights on.
  • Avoid panic; walk, do not run, when exiting.
  • Take the most direct route to the nearest designated safe area. Do not stop for your valuables.
  • Move any obstructions found in passageways or exits out of the exit path.
  • Alert others around you. Assist with the evacuation of any handicapped individuals. If unable to assist a handicapped individual, stage the person in front of the elevators (Main Campus and City Center Campus). Advise the individual that you will notify rescue personnel of their location.
  • Keep streets, fire lanes, hydrant areas and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and personnel.
  • After exiting the building move away from the building to a designated safe area or any area as directed, to avoid danger and to allow room for emergency personnel and their equipment. Do not congregate outside exit doors.
  • Conditions such as inclement weather may warrant evacuation to your vehicle so do not leave campus grounds as you may hinder access to emergency personnel and vehicles.
  • Sector leaders will verify with their sector instructors the number of students present in their class. It is recommended that a headcount be taken at the beginning of each class, and that this number be given to the sector leader by each instructor if the situation warrants.
  • Follow all police and fire department directives. Emergency response personnel, if on scene, must authorize the issuance of an "All Clear" notice before anyone can re-enter the building.
  • The designated college official will relay any other action as directed by the on-scene fire or police personnel. If it is not possible to re-enter the building, notification of actions to be followed will be issued by the designated college official.
