Evacuation


It is extremely important that all tenants evacuate in the precise manner and to the exact area as designated by the tenant safety coordinators.

The following evacuation procedures should be observed:

  • Before opening any door to the corridor, check the door and doorknob for heat. If it is warm, stay in your office and, if possible, caulk around the door seams using wet towels or "duct" tape. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR! Find another exit to the corridor.
  • If both your door and doorknob are cool and you leave your office:
    • Check for smoke in the corridor.
    • When smoke is present, stay low by crawling since clean air is closest to the floor.
    • Everyone should proceed quickly, but calmly to the nearest stairwell. DO NOT RUN. All stairwells are constructed with fire-resistant materials to provide safe evacuation for building occupants.
  • DO NOT PANIC, Panic is the most harmful and most difficult element to control in an emergency. Avoiding panic is accomplished through knowledge of the procedures that must be followed.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THE ELEVATORS

In the event of an emergency, the elevators will report to the main lobby where the doors will open and they will not be available for use.
