Evacuations

Building Evacuation

You should familiarize yourself with the evacuation routes posted in all campus buildings. If an evacuation order is issued for your building, or if it were necessary to evacuate due to an emergency, fully cooperate with Safety and Security/emergency personnel and:

  • Take only  keys, wallets and essential belongings with you
  • If possible wear weather appropriate clothing
  • If you are the last one to exit your room close, and lock doors
  • Leave the building immediately
  • Do not investigate the source of the emergency
  • Walk, don’t run, to the nearest exit
  • Use stairs, not elevators
  • Assist people with special needs
  • If there is no immediate danger, persons with disability/mobility limitations should shelter in place and call Safety and Security at 603-646-4000 (6-4000 from Campus phones) to report location and number of people needing assistance
  • If there is imminent danger and evacuation cannot be delayed, the person with a disability should be carried or helped from the building in the best and fastest manner (the person with the disability is the best authority as to how to be moved out of the building)
  • If you are unable to evacuate, call Safety and Security at 603-646-3333 (6-3333 from Campus phones) and report your location
  • As you make your way out, encourage those you encounter to exit as well
  • Follow instructions of the Department of Safety and Security or other identified emergency personnel
  • Wait for instructions before returning to your building after an evacuation

 

Remember: “Safety and Security” is also YOUR responsibility.
