Evacuation and emergency exits


Emergency procedure

You may need to evacuate if a natural disaster occurs, if a fire exists, if toxic fumes are present in the building. What is most important, no matter the reason, is to remain calm.



Evacuation procedures

  • Learn locations of exit routes, exit stairwells and areas of refuge in any buildings you routinely use
  • Learn in advance the needs of anyone for whom you are responsible that may need assistance during an emergency
  • Know emergency phone numbers and keep them posted
  • Remain calm
  • Do not use elevators
  • Proceed safely down the stairs using the handrails
  • Exit the building using the nearest safe exit and proceed to refuge area/assembly area
