   Please review it, and add it to your “favorites” list for easy access.
   You may want to download a copy to keep in your desk to refer to as

   Building and Department Safety coordinators have been
    selected for each campus building. During an emergency
    requiring evacuation during regular business hours, these
     – act as liaison between building occupants and emergency
     – assist in determining if all occupants have safely evacuated
        the building
     – are in contact with emergency personnel via walkie-talkie.
     – will be wearing an orange vest

       A list of coordinators can be obtained from EH&S (8-7422)

     This is an example of
     an emergency information posting.
    It can be found posted at the exits
    of classrooms, offices and
    conference rooms. It includes
    the location where occupants
    should assemble until further
    direction is provided.

    Faculty may want to
    include a section in their
    syllabi that refers to
    emergency signs to prompt
    student awareness of
    posted notices

Prior to an emergency:
 Review the emergency information posted in each classroom/office/conference room
 Review the campus emergency procedures manual
 Become familiar with exits of buildings in which you teach/work (building maps are
  located in building hallways)

During an evacuation order:
 Immediately evacuate the building and proceed to the
  designated assembly point. Doing so will help emergency
  personnel determine if an occupant rescue is necessary.
 Use the “buddy system” and look out for someone else. Help each other get out of the
  building. Be aware of occupants that need help.
 Follow the evacuation procedures, and direction provided by emergency personnel,
  building/safety coordinators.

   Are responsible for the orderly evacuation of the students in
    the class they are teaching when an evacuation order is
    given. This includes assisting students with disabilities in
    the evacuation process. (see slides 16 & 17)
   Provide leadership to ensure that evacuation procedures are
    Most Department Safety Coordinators are not on campus
    during the evening hours. Students will look to instructors
    for help and direction.

Note: Students and staff should be encouraged to provide
  notification before an emergency occurs if they suspect they
  will need assistance with evacuating.

   Are responsible for the orderly evacuation of the employees
    under their supervision when in the work area during an
    evacuation order. This includes assisting employees with
    disabilities in the evacuation process. (see slides 16 & 17)
   Provide leadership to ensure that evacuation procedures are
    Most Department Safety Coordinators are not on campus
    during the evening hours. Staff will look to managers for
    help and direction.

Note: Staff should be encouraged to provide notification before
  an emergency occurs if they suspect they will need
  assistance with evacuating.

   Quickly exit the building using the nearest/safest building exit.
   Proceed to the pre-designated building assembly point.
   Inform the Safety/Building coordinator (or emergency
    personnel) of:
     – any student or occupant in need of rescue
     – extent of injuries received by anyone in your group
     – any hazardous condition such as fire or hazardous
    Do not leave the assembly point until:
     A) the safety/building coordinator or emergency responder is
        aware that you have safely exited the building
     B) it is safe to do so

Once you’ve evacuated your building, emergency personnel may
  advise you that a campus-wide evacuation is necessary.

   Proceed to the closest of the four predetermined evacuation
                      "V" Lot at Shaw and Woodrow
                       (temporary location is “A” Lot while “V” is under construction)
                      "G" Lot at Shaw and Cedar
                      Grassy Field at Barstow and Cedar
                      O'Neil Park at Barstow and Woodrow
             –   See map on next slide.
    Do not leave until emergency personnel inform you that it is
    safe to do so.

Persons with limited mobility should observe the
  following procedures when evacuating:
   Move toward an exit, an elevator may be used except in
    an earthquake or fire
   Request assistance from others with overcoming
   If assistance is not available, the person requiring
    assistance should remain by a wall near an exit, either
    calling out for help, or blowing a whistle
   Life Sliders are available in multi story buildings to assist
    those who cannot effectively evacuate via stairs.
       Evacuation of Persons with
           Disabilities (Cont.)

Persons anticipating difficulty evacuating a building
  are encouraged to:
   review the various escape routes available, and locations
    of life sliders
   inform their department safety coordinator or supervisor
    in advance of an emergency to assist with planning
   Carry an emergency whistle

Persons with hearing or vision impairment are
  encouraged to notify University Police (8-8400)
  whenever working alone.

Additional help is always in need in times of crisis, and
  also during emergency preparedness planning.
 Help is needed:
    –   With clearing buildings of occupants
    –   Assisting the mobility impaired with evacuating using
        LifeSliders (LifeSlider training provided to rescuers)
