Annual Evacuation Drill Weeks September 18 – 28, 2017

Submitted by 21232f297a57a5a... on Thu, 09/04/2014 - 4:07pm

Emergency preparedness training is a critical part of ensuring the safety of students, faculty and staff at the University of Calgary. Emergency Evacuation Training is also an annual requirement of the Alberta Fire Code.

As part of our efforts to support a safe campus environment, the university will be carrying out evacuation drills from September 18-28, 2017  in campus buildings as part of our annual emergency preparedness training.

If you work, teach or study in a building scheduled to be evacuated (listed below), please plan for a 30 minute disruption to your daily activities and know:

  1. Your evacuation procedure
  2. The assembly point for your building (designated to provide a safe area with shelter, appropriate facilities for large numbers of people and communication on the status of the event)
  3. Instructors, please assist your population in routing to the appropriate exit and assembly point

Building evacuation exercises will be conducted twice per day, at 9:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and at 9:15 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.

Most people enter and leave a building the same way each day, so it can be easy to overlook the features of a building that are designed to keep people safe. Evacuation drills allow students, faculty and staff to locate and use alternative routes under safe conditions, which ensures a building can be evacuated quickly and assists with any rescue efforts required during a real emergency.

All persons with an impairment that are located in your area of responsibility should be made aware of the Emergency Buddy Program; however, individuals are ultimately in charge of their own personal safety. For more details please review the Emergency Warden Program.

Representatives from Emergency Management, the Calgary Fire Department, Campus Security and Life Safety will be involved with each building exercise. Additional questions can be directed to emergencymgmt@ucalgary.ca.
