Building evacuation drills are one way to prepare for an emergency and help create a safe campus environment. Evacuation drills are a regulatory requirement, but also provide many benefits. Evacuation drills provide opportunities for responders, building occupants, and the Emergency Management department to prepare for emergency situations.
Evacuation drills help ensure that students, faculty and staff know how to exit buildings on campus safely and as quickly as possible. Campus-wide evacuation drills are conducted annually.
