Page: 1 of 3  |  Next

In the event of an emergency, it may become necessary to evacuate the building. All Floor Response Team personnel, as well as general personnel, should be completely familiar with the following evacuation procedures:

  1. In an emergency situation, wait until Management or designated Floor Response Team personnel indicate that it is safe and appropriate to evacuate the building.

  2. If you are directed to evacuate, closely follow the instructions of all Floor Response Team personnel including Floor Wardens, Elevator Monitors, Safety Marshalls and Stairwell Monitors.

  3. Do not exit via the elevators.

  4. Exit via stairwells only after a Stairwell Monitor has deemed it safe to do so.

  5. Familiarize yourself with the location of all stairwell exits; in the event a stairwell is blocked, proceed to an alternate stairwell.

  6. Use safe stairwell exit procedures including:

    1. Remain calm and quiet;
    2. Remove high heeled shoes (when it is safe to do so);
    3. Exit in a single file and keep to the right, using hand rails;
    4. Move quickly, but do not run.

  7. Assist those who may have trouble on the stairs or who have been injured. Those persons requiring physical assistance should wait on the inside of the stairwell doors but out of the flow of for traffic, once the stairwell has been deemed safe by the Stairwell Monitor.

  8. Treat injuries on stairwell landings only when it is safe to do so.
