Handicapped emergency procedures
What to do in the event of a fire, explosion or hazardous material emergency:
Follow your area-specific emergency action plan.
If you are unable to evacuate the building:
- Evacuate to the designated area of refuge — typically in or near stairwell.
- If an area of refuge is not available go to a safe area and call 911.
If you need an accommodation to carry out your area-specific emergency action plan, identify that need to your supervisor so that arrangements can be made.
Further assistance can be obtained from Safety and Environmental Management at 581.4055.
