1.1

Building Evacuation


How to Do:

a. All building evacuations will occur when an alarm sounds, when a CU Alert message is issued, and/or upon notification by the Emergency Director.  Tests of the emergency alert system are not an exception to this rule.

b. When the building evacuation alarm is activated during an emergency, leave by the nearest marked exit and alert others to do the same. Evacuation routes are posted in each classroom wall near the door.

When classes are in progress, the instructor will be responsible for instructing all students in the classroom to evacuate the building, using the nearest exit. Building Runners will be responsible for insuring that buildings are evacuated.

c. ASSIST INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES IN EXITING THE BUILDING! The safe evacuation of individuals with disabilities is a top priority in evacuating the building.

d. Once outside, proceed to a clear area that is at least 500 feet away from the affected building. Keep streets, fire lanes, hydrant areas and walkways clear for emergency vehicles and personnel.

e. DO NOT RETURN TO AN EVACUATED BUILDING unless you are given the “all clear” signal by the appropriate university personnel. The signal that the staff and students can return to an evacuated building will be initiated by emergency response personnel. Once the Emergency Director receives the “all clear” signal, s/he will communicate this to the Building Runners, who will notify evacuated staff and students that they can return to the building.

f. University personnel should request that students stay at a designated area until an accurate headcount is taken. Faculty members will compile a list of students in their classes who are at the evacuation location and give this list to the Emergency Director.
