unless otherwise directed by emergency personnel.

SOME EMERGENCIES MAY REQUIRE EVACUATION OF THE BUILDINGS-
In this event:

í     If time permits, turn off lights and equipment. Close doors as you leave.

î     Remain calm and orderly. Walk quickly but DO NOT RUN to the NEAREST exit.

ï     Use stairways only, DO NOT USE ELEVATORS since they may malfunction or open onto a
      fire.

 EVACUATION OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
Dixie State College personnel are responsible for the evacuation of persons with disabilities in their
respective areas. Dixie State College personnel must obtain the assistance necessary to evacuate these
persons and ensure that persons with disabilities are attended to until the “ALL CLEAR” is given or until
relieved by emergency personnel.

                                PERSONS WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENTS
Tell the person the nature of the emergency and offer to guide them to the nearest exit. Have the person
take your elbow and escort them (this is the preferred method when acting as a “sighted guide”).


                               PERSONS WITH HEARING IMPAIRMENTS
Two methods of warning are:
   Write a message indicating the nature of the emergency and the nearest evacuation route.
     For example: FIRE!!! Exit out the 1st door on the left and go to the parking lot. NOW!!
   Tap the person’s shoulder and point to the strobe lights on the fire alarms or turn the room lights
     on and off to get their attention. Indicate through writing a note or gesturing what is happening
     and what to do.

                              PERSONS WITH MOBILITY IMPAIRMENTS
Persons with mobility impairments should be escorted to the nearest exit or stairwell assembly point and at
least 2 persons should remain to assist, if further evacuation becomes necessary, DO NOT attempt to
carry persons with mobility impairments unless there is IMMINENT DANGER. Lifting a person with
minimal ability to move may be dangerous to their well being.

Wheelchairs have many moveable parts some are not designed to withstand the stress of lifting. You may
have to remove the batteries. Life support equipment may be attached.

      ALWAYS consult the person with mobility impairment regarding:

            The number of people necessary for assistance.
            The preferred way to be removed from the wheelchair.
            Whether the seat cushion pad should be brought along with the person if the person is
             removed from the wheelchair.

            Whether to extend or bend extremities when lifting because of pain, catheter, leg bands,
             spasticity, braces, etc.

            The type of assistance necessary after evacuation.

                                             Carrying Options
                     Carrying options include using a 2 person lock-arms position or
                     having the person sit in a sturdy chair, preferable one with arms.
