Individual Roles in Emergency Situations

Students

Every student should familiarize themselves with the emergency procedures and evacuation routes in buildings they live in or use frequently. Students must be prepared to assess situations quickly but thoroughly, and use common sense in determining a course of action. They should evacuate assembly areas in an orderly manner when an alarm sounds or when directed to do so by emergency personnel.

Staff

Every member of the faculty and staff should read and understand both their Building and Department Emergency Plans and familiarize themselves with their emergency procedures and evacuation routes. Employees must be prepared to assess situations quickly but thoroughly, and use common sense in determining a course of action. They should follow Emergency Plan procedures to report fire or other emergencies that require immediate attention, and evacuate the building to pre-designated areas in an orderly manner. Faculty members are seen as leaders by students and should be prepared to direct their students to assembly areas in the event of an emergency.

Building Administrator

Each Building Coordinator is responsible for developing a Building Emergency Plan. Building Coordinators are responsible for ensuring that Building Emergency Response Team (BERT) is designated. In the event of an emergency, the Building Coordinator is responsible for coordinating safe evacuation (with the assistance of BERT). The Building Coordinator acts as the liaison to the EOC.
