Evacuation - Building

Some incidents, emergencies and disasters require evacuation of a building.

The four steps to exit a building safely are:

1.  Evacuate
2.  Assemble
3.  Account
4.  Report Ability to Assist Others

The policy of Carroll College is that all occupants will evacuate the building immediately in the event of activiation of the fire alarm system or other means of notification. Employees will evacuate using the closest available marked exit. When an employee is away from their assigned work area, they will evacuate the building using the same route as the employees in that location. 

Important factors to remember:

  • Follow the evacuation routes posted in the room unless otherwise advised.
  • Close your office or classroom door, but leave unlocked.
  • Do not touch the light switches or touch or handle anything suspicious.
  • Walk as fast as possible, but do not run.
  • Do not return to your work area to retrieve personal items.
  • Help those who need assistance.
  • If the closest exit is unavailable, use next nearest exit.
  • If the designated assembly area is unavailable, please use the Upper Level of the Campus Center as the primary assembly area. The secondary assembly area will be in the PE Center Gym.
  • All employees are required to remain at their assembly area until instructed otherwise.
  • If anything suspicious is noted report this information immediately to an Emergency Response Team member.

Assembly Locations

Carroll College employees, students and guest may be asked to evacuate a building. If so, please evacuate the building to the designated assembly location for the building. Report any missing individuals to the Building Action Team Coordinator.
