Building Evacuation Plans

Evacuation plans for facilities in the College of Agricultural Sciences.

Emergency Evacuation

If a building is not posted for fire alarm testing on the entrances, you MUST evacuate the building if the fire alarm goes off.  Do not assume it’s a false alarm.  Potential emergencies such as fire, explosion, spill, chemical releases and other emergencies may require employees to evacuate the building.  Your inconvenience is not worth your safety!  There are evacuation plans posted on every floor of every building.  You can also download PDF's of the evacuation plans at the below building links.  Please familiarize yourself with the evacuation plan for your building and identify the nearest exits.  Please also familiarize yourself with the designated meeting site for your building which can be found on the evacuation plans. You need to be a safe distance away from the building in case of an explosion or other hazard.  Once you evacuate the building, you must wait at the designated meeting site until you are told it’s safe to reenter the building by University Police.

Evacuation Procedure

  1. Exit the building as calmly and quickly as possible using the nearest safe exit. Do not use the elevator.
  2. Direct others, including students in classrooms, and those in the immediate area to evacuate.
  3. Quickly shutdown operating equipment, if it is safe to do so.
  4. Gather your personal belongings, if it is safe to do so.
  5. If safe, close your office door(s), but do not lock them.
  6. Help others in need of assistance.
  7. Move to your building's designated meeting site. Do not leave the meeting site.  You must check in with your Safety Monitor and let them know you  have made it out safely.
  8. Advise designated public safety officials if you suspect that someone is missing, injured or needs assistance to evacuate.
  9. Do not re-enter the building or work area until you have been instructed to do so by designated safety officials. Silencing of alarms does not mean the emergency is over.
