Campus Evacuation

  1. Announcement of a campus-wide evacuation would come from the Emergency Manager or the Chair of the Management Team.
  2. Occupants must leave the building by the nearest marked exit and alert others to do the same.
  3. Move off campus. A detailed plan is not required for campus evacuation due to its small size and the ease of evacuation. Consideration is thus only given to the development of specific plans for building evacuation.
  4. After community and RU officials have declared the emergency has passed, occupants shall be recalled; they will be asked to return to their place of work and await further instructions.

If all communications are disabled, members of the Emergency Response Group are asked to return to their place of work once their family needs are satisfied. All other personnel should remain at home until communications can be established.
