What to Do in an Emergency?


When evacuating your building or work area:

  • You are required by law to evacuate the building when the fire alarm sounds
  • Stay calm, evaluate the situation carefully
  • Safely stop your work
  • Gather your personal belongings only if it is safe to do so
  • Close doors and windows to prevent spread of smoke and fire
  • Keep in mind you may have to use an exit that you don’t normally use.
  • Do not use elevators
  • Some exits could be blocked in an emergency, always know an alternate way out.
  • Touch closed doors, do not open the if they are hot
  • As you exit inform others who may not be aware of the situation
  • Proceed to the building’s designated Emergency Assembly Point (EAP).
  • The Assembly Point Leader or Roll Taker will take roll call to account for everyone as best as possible.
  • When the emergency responders arrive they will need someone to provide them the exact nature of the emergency
  • Stay upwind of the building/area if hazardous materials are involved
  • Wait for instructions from emergency responders
  • Do not re-enter the building or work area until the emergency responders declare the scene safe
