General Evacuation Procedure

In the event of an emergency or disruption to the Building's normal operation the first reaction should be to REMAIN CALM and call the Management Office to report the emergency this will set in motion several events simultaneously:
  • Immediate dispatch of qualified assistance for fire, medical or other emergencies
  • Call to municipal assistance organizations, i.e., fire, police, EMS
In the event it is necessary to evacuate part or all of the building, remain CALM and LISTEN to the instructions being given over the public address system, and by property staff. Emergency Exit Stairwells are to be used for evacuation. DO NOT USE ELEVATORS unless instructed to do so over the public address system, or by Police or Fire Department representatives. Stairwell entrances are located on the north and south side of the Building's core in close proximity to the lavatories.

When using the Emergency Exit Stairwell, keep to the right so that incoming emergency personnel can utilize the stairwell.

An up-to-date listing of all personnel who may need assistance should be kept by the Suite Marshal and be on file with the Management Office.
