This is an important duty that can prevent injuries and save lives in a emergency.

MU Building Emergency Coordinator Training

Building Emergency Coordinator

The main focus of the Building Emergency Coordinator is to develop the Emergency Action Plan for their building and coordinate the activities of the buildings Fire Marshals.

This is accomplished by:

being prepared for the emergency before it happens.

MU Building Emergency Coordinator Training

Building Emergency Action Plan

It is a requirement that all campus buildings have a Building Emergency Action Plan. The plan should address the objectives and responsibilities discussed in this presentation. Plans should be living documents that are reviewed on a regular basis and updated as changes occur.

Choose and train others to be Fire Marshals, who will help implement the elements of the Building Emergency Action Plan in an emergency situation.

Complete the information requested in the Emergency Action Plan Model

Development, implement, and maintain the plan

Coordinate with Department Chairs/other key building personnel

Identify building Fire Marshals

Familiarize Fire Marshals and all building occupants with plan

Identify occupants needing assistance

List of rooms with hazardous materials

Identify equipment needing special attention in power disruption

List of Departmental employee, home and cell phone numbers

Educate co-workers on fire safety.

Train new Fire Marshals on Emergency Action Plan, exit routes, shelter-in-place recommendations, assembly and shelter areas

Keep your Emergency Action Plan handy at all times so that you can easily take it with you when you leave. I recommend having it close to your office door.

Assure Emergency Evacuation and “Seek Shelter” drills are conducted at least annually. (Critique drills, enlist technical support)

Designate an area away from the building for assembly following evacuation. Designate a secondary assembly area (enclosed) in case of inclement weather.

This assembly area should be at least 100 feet from the building.

Preparation Responsibilities

It is important to practice. A building evacuation and seek shelter drill should be conducted at least annually. The Building Emergency Coordinator should contact the Department of Public Safety and Facilities Services and ask for their assistance in conducting the drill.

Please participate in these drills, and let the office of EH&S know of any problems.

  • Account for all employees by meeting building occupants at the designated assembly area.
  • Advise building occupants regarding situation and when re-entry is permitted.

Seek Shelter Responsibilities

Seek Shelter (Severe Weather)

A severe weather event such as tornado or wind event may necessitate you to “Take Shelter” until the threat of bad weather has passed. Relocating from your normal work area to a space that has no windows or to a lower floor may increase your chances of survival.

In an seek shelter event, each Fire Marshal is responsible for the following:

  • Sweep through assigned area to alert occupants to seek shelter
  • Move to a designated shelter area within the building. (Refer to building Emergency Evacuation Maps for designated shelter areas)
  • Assist building occupants needing assistance, when it is safe to do so.
  • Account for all employees by meeting building occupants at the designated shelter area.
  • Advise building occupants regarding situation and when an all-clear has been called
  • Report to BEC with names of employees unaccounted for, and any other information necessary to assist emergency personnel. The BEC should report this information to Incident Command.
  • If not possible:
    • Move to a interior room with no windows, or a hallway on the lowest floor possible
    • Move to and interior stairwell if all rooms have windows
