Introduction An emergency situation could occur at any moment. Depending on the situation - an evacuation may be ordered. Successful and safe evacuations require careful planning, and a well-informed building population. This training presentation will provide you with information that you need to know when you receive an order to evacuate. How will you be notified? What are the procedures? What are your responsibilities?
EVACUATION NOTIFICATION Notification to evacuate will be completed via the following methods as time and the situation permit: Fire alarm Telephone Building/Department Safety Coordinators 1040 on the AM dial
Phone Trees… Are used to provide information to employees via telephone. May be used during campus off hours to inform employees NOT to come to campus. If you are responsible for maintaining a phone tree, it should be reviewed often to ensure they are up-to-date. If you are responsible for calling employees, but can’t reach someone who is in charge of calling another group of employees – you must make their calls for them. If you are responsible for calling employees, copies of phone trees should be made accessible from home or the office. If you are NOT responsible for calling others, this slide is for your information only.

Campus Emergency Procedures Manual Includes information about the following: - Fires/Explosions/Hazardous Materials Spills - Workplace Violence - Bomb threats/searches - Earthquakes - Important contact numbers This manual can be found at: www.csufresno.edu/police/emergency.htm www.csufresno.edu/police/emergency.htm 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 needed. If you don’t have the ability to print copies from a campus printer, please contact your Department Safety Coordinator to obtain a hard copy.
BUILDING AND DEPARTMENT SAFETY COORDINATORS Building and Department Safety coordinators have been selected for each campus building. During an emergency requiring evacuation during regular business hours, these individuals: – act as liaison between building occupants and emergency personnel. – 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)
EMERGENCY INFORMATION 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
BUILDING OCCUPANT RESPONSIBILITIES 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.
FACULTY MEMBERS 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 followed. 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.
MANAGERS 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 followed. 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.
BUILDING ONLY EVACUATION PROCEDURES 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 materials Do not leave the assembly point until: A) the safety/building coordinator or emergency responder is aware that you have safely exited the building AND B) it is safe to do so
CAMPUS WIDE EVACUATION PROCEDURES 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 points: "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.
EVACUATING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES 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 obstructions 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.
WANT TO HELP WITH EVACUATIONS AND/OR EMERGENCY PLANNING? 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) If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact your department safety coordinator and/or EH&S.
