Evacuation Areas of Gathering and Relocation

During an emergency evacuation of any campus building, it is important for the occupants to assemble at a safe distance away from the building. This keeps building occupants clear of the hazard zone and in a location where information can be given to all occupants at one time, thus avoiding rumors and miscommunication. Should the reason for the evacuation not be resolved in a short period of time, you will be advised to relocate to a pre-designated Area of Gathering where information regarding the reason for the evacuation and the estimated duration of the incident will be provided. The Area of Gathering is posted in the common areas of each campus building. In the unlikely event that the building or portion of the building becomes compromised to the extent that reoccupation is prohibited, you will be directed to an Area of Relocation where shelter, toilet facilities and telephones will be available. Here is the list for suggested Areas of Gathering and Relocation for each building on all three campuses. Depending upon the day of the week, time of day and weather conditions that the incident occurs, a designated building may not be available. In that event, an alternative site will be found and communicated to the occupants.
