Expectations for Faculty, Staff, and Students for evacuating during a fire alarm or other emergency Maps and guidance for evacuation Guidance for students, guests, and employees with disabilities https://www.brockport.edu/ehs/internal/docs/ evac_procedures.pdf
Inform class of meeting location in the event of an alarm Consider a class roster for check-in Refer any student/visitor who feels they may need additional assistance to the Office for Students with Disabilities Think about what you are prepared and capable to do. Seek input from your chair or EHS.
OSD is a resource for students HR is helpful for faculty/staff EHS serves as a campus resource for both faculty/staff/students and the campus at large. EHS is available to review evacuation procedures specific to class locations
Why Faculty? Why not UP or EHS? ◦ In emergencies requiring evacuation, faculty are the employees on scene. UP and EHS are generally assisting emergency responders. What if I have a large class? Do you expect me to track everyone down? ◦ For large classes, do your best. You do not have to track everyone down, but in the event of a large scale emergency, we could use whatever roster information to determine individuals to be account for.
How do I help evacuate a student/visitor in a wheel chair? ◦ Talk to the student/visitor first. They often have a plan. ◦ Know multiple accessible exits. ◦ Elevators should not be used when the fire alarm goes off. Many do not operate when the alarm is activated. ◦ The safest place in buildings is in enclosed stairwells. They are more fire protective and are the locations where responders check first. You are not required to stay with the student, but you may choose to. ◦ Call University Police with the location- be as specific as possible. Hartwell and Drake have signs in the stairwells. In the event of a drill, UP will confirm that it is a drill. 9
What about other physical disabilities? ◦ It depends on their disability- Talk to them. ◦ Contact OSD and EHS for assistance with a plan. It’s a nice day so it must be a drill, do I really have to leave? ◦ YES. Drills only happen once a semester, and you just never know. Drills are important practice for a real emergency and are required by law. Most alarms are NOT drills, but a device activation. 10
