Evacuation Procedures

  1. Each work area has a primary and secondary evacuation plan assigned to its occupants.
  2. Proceed by stairwell to exit the building as directed.
  3. After exiting the building, move away to allow fire fighters and equipment easy access, and avoid the risk of falling debris.
  4. Proceed to your designated rendezvous location. Remain there and stand by for further instructions. (If unsure of location, contact your supervisor.)
  5. After hours (5PM-6AM M-F and all day Sat/Sun) all tenants should evacuate to the 1st floor of the Robert St. Ramp. GR Security will inform them when the all clear is given.



  • Leave fire area immediately and close the doors behind you.
  • Use stairwells to evacuate.
  • If caught in heavy smoke, take short breaths through your nose and stay low to the floor. (Cleaner air is near the floor because toxic gases rise.)
  • Stay calm and alert.
  • Listen for further announcements and instructions and follow them.
  • Evacuate in an orderly fashion, keeping to the right in the stairwells and single file.



  • Do not attempt to fight the fire.
  • Do not use the elevators.
  • Do not run or create panic.
  • Do not return to your office until the “ALL CLEAR” is given.
