Emergency Procedures for Disabled Personnel

If the disabled person cannot safely evacuate the building, one person should stay with the disabled individual while another person reports his/her location to the University Police.

Hearing impaired and visually impaired persons need only one person each to notify them of a fire alarm or guide them to safe escape routes during an evacuation.

After evacuating employees and students have cleared all stairways, disabled persons should be assisted to the stairwell landings to await emergency personnel. All doors to the stairwells must be kept closed during this time.

NOTE: Environmental Health & Safety would like to offer the following reminders to those who are disabled or have special needs: Take control without depending on others to take the first step.

Don't be afraid to let others know you need assistance.

Don't hesitate to communicate what your special needs are in order to make the evacuation easier and safer for you and for your assistants.

Communicate with those who can help as soon as you are able by dialing 3003 to campus Police.

Plan ahead. Be prepared. Know what you are going to do before an emergency arises. Make a plan and then test it. Determine what your alternatives are.

When you enter an unfamiliar building, look it over and locate the most available telephones, note horizontal exits and ramps, note exit signs and enclosed stairwells determine if landings are large enough), note rooms that would make good areas of refuge, and note the location of fire alarm pull stations.

Never take an elevator in a building on fire.

Don't delay your evacuation or communication to evacuate. Speaking with someone over the telephone will help to keep you calm.
