    13. 13 Building Resident Actions in Emergencies Earthquake / Severe Weather / Building Exterior Emergency Building is constructed to withstand 120 mph winds We approach hurricane preparation in a methodical manner to remove loose items from the grounds. For Tornado alerts, building occupants will be told to stand clear of windows and may be asked to move to more secure areas of the building fire stairs, auditorium, lower level parking lot side office spaces.

    14. 14 During Emergency Evacuation Check/Clear all persons out of assigned bay/areas including restrooms, conference rooms, etc. Once persons are clear, close all doors and leave lights on. Secure classified material. Use any fire exit stair or exterior door, exit by the shortest route (you can use the open stairs). Do not reenter the building. Fire Evacuation In the event of a fire emergency, the fire alarm will sound in one or more of the fire zones within the Headquarters Complex. It is highly UNLIKELY that the alarm will activate for the whole building. Evacuation actions are as follows: * General procedures --- Proceed via the fire exit stairways to the first floor and out the building on the parking lot side. Rendezvous with your organization in pre-designated locations near the sidewalk along the front of the building. NOTE: If you are smoking in the rear of the building, DO NOT reenter the building -walk around the perimeter of the building to the prearranged rendezvous area. * For persons with disabilities --- Proceed with your designated assistance person to the nearest elevators. Press the button to call the elevator. If the elevator call button does NOT stay lighted, proceed horizontally on the same floor to another set of elevators and try to use this set of elevators and so on. NOTE: the elevator call light will NOT stay lighted if there is smoke in one of the elevator lobbies in that bank of elevators. IF none of the elevators can provide service due to the fire condition, then proceed to the external balcony at either end of the building (these are Safe Havens) and await assistance from the fire department personnel. The designated assistance person should report the location of the person to security. We have alerted the fire department to be prepared for this emergency. Rendezvous with your organization as soon as possible. Fire Evacuation In the event of a fire emergency, the fire alarm will sound in one or more of the fire zones within the Headquarters Complex.
