Emergency Evacuation Procedures

When a Fire Alarm sounds, you must immediately START to evacuate the building, unless you have been previously notified to disregard the Fire Alarm. You must evacuate the building under all critical circumstances, even if the Fire alarm stops sounding.

Follow these guidelines to ensure safe and adequate evacuation.

  1. DO NOT HALT AN EVACUATION FOR ANY REASON ONCE IT IS STARTED.
  2. Take your belongings (and purse, laptop, briefcase, etc.) and any other item you brought in with you that day if it is easily available
  3. If possible lock or shutdown computers and secure “confidential” documents.
  4. NEVER ATTEMPT TO GO TO ANOTHER FLOOR IF YOU ARE NOT NEARBY YOUR WORKING AREA.
  5. DO NOT OPERATE MOBILE PHONES, TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION DEVICES, OR SAME EQUIPMENT DURING ANY EVACUATION.
  6. As you leave your working area, observe & inspect if there are any suspicious items, boxes, parcels, envelopes, etc. in your working areas. Immediately report any such suspicious items to the Exit security officer or floor in charge as you exit the floor. Always remember that at the beginning of an evacuation you will not essentially know the reason for the evacuation. It could be a real bomb threat, real fire incident, another real emergency, or drill.
  7. Head towards the NEAREST emergency exit and START evacuation.
  8. DO NOT try to use the elevators. They are programmed with the FACP system and will be out of service the moment an alarm sounds.
  9. Use the stairwells for EXITS ONLY.
  10. When rushing to the stairwells, it is essential to keep a single file movement. As you enter the stairwells, keep to the outside (right) of the stairwell and then slowly merge to the inside (left) by the next floor. Stay along the inside (left) of the stair railing to permit for the entry of people from other floors.
  11. If you need help for evacuating the building, report to the secure area at any of the stairwells, wait for a “co-worker” and instructions from the Floor in charge/chief.
  12. If you have a visitor to the excavated Building who requires help at any time during an evacuation operation, please report to the safe area at any of the stairwells with them and wait until instructions from the Floor in charge.
  13. You MUST leave the building ASAP. After exiting the building, head (indicate direction – north, south, east, west) until you reach the DESIGNATED Assembly Area. 
  14. In the event of an emergency requiring evacuation of the building, the Floor IN CHARGE will contact the Building Fire Marshal located in the DESIGNATED LOCATION of the building to notify him/her of the status of his/her floor, as well as to report the number of people that need help. Unless directed otherwise by the Building Fire Marshal you should then report to Primary Assembly Area. If required, the Secondary Incident Command will be the (mention location) and the Secondary Assembly Area will be the (mention location).
  15. If at any time during an evacuation operation a person creates a hazard to co-employees, the Floor in charge/Chief or any other Safety Team Member has the authority to sideline that personal from the stairwell until they can continue descending without risk the health and safety of fellow employees.
  16. Remember that all evacuation team members should wear their orange vests on for identification.
