Building Monitor

Evacuation Training

October 2010

evacuations may be called for
Evacuations May Be Called For:
  • Fires
  • Gas Leaks
  • Hazardous Materials Spills
  • Earthquakes
  • Other situations

Evacuation Preparation

  • Review your Building Monitor Training!
the evacuation begins
The Evacuation Begins
  • Either after an evacuation order has been received (in person or by phone) or because you feel it is the best course of action at the time – begin the evacuation.
  • Do you have to make any ‘on the spot’ changes due to conditions? (for example, one of the stairwells is collapsed…)
  • Put your plan into action – be systematic – follow it as closely as you can so as not to overlook someone or some area

If your building did not suffer any major damage (from an earthquake) or does not appear to be immediately involved in the activity requiring evacuation (fire, gas leak) AND everyone in your immediate vicinity seems to be OK

  • THEN…

Ensure the disabled have someone to assist them to the Football field

  • Ask each instructor to lead their class outside to the designated evacuation area (Football Field unless unsafe or told otherwise) and to account for their class members.

Go quickly from class to class giving the evacuation order and the directions – simply and clearly – “Is everyone in this room OK?” “Good. Mr. Smith, please lead your class to the Football field, position X and take the class roll with you. Please all stay together and watch out for any debris along the way.” (as an example)


Once you have systematically notified all classes and offices/work areas to evacuate, make a sweep of your building if possible to insure all got out OK. Mark with blue tape on exit door as you leave – write on it ‘all cleared’ or note offices/areas you could not access.

  • Evacuate yourself to the Football field and report to the “check in table” the status of your evacuation and condition of the buildings.
but if your building has suffered damage and or you have injured people
BUT – If your building has suffered damage and/or you have injured people:
  • What are the immediate problems in your building? – collapsed walls, loose power lines, leaking gas, etc.
  • Do you need to do any emergency cut off closures (gas, etc.)?
  • Is it safe to begin your evacuation plan? Don’t forget to look outside FIRST! Are exits blocked, etc.?
  • If you can, begin the evacuation but also do first aide
    • Do you have someone who can help you evacuate while you do first aide? Or who can do first aide while you evacuate?
    • Can you get the injured moved safely to the evacuation area or do you need a rescue crew to reach them?

Make sure you notify the command center as soon as possible if you cannot evacuate the injured or the damage to the building is serious (explosion/fire). If you can not phone, send an able bodied volunteer to the command center to report.

  • Identify where the injured are and the extent of injuries if possible – do whatever first aide is possible to do.
special note for an earthquake the shaking starts
Special Note for an Earthquake:The shaking starts…
  • Protect yourself and others
    • Do you know what to do inside –
      • Avoid glass
      • ‘duck – cover - hold’ – at least 60 seconds – the ‘crash’ position
      • Safer zones – inside walls, kneel –face away from windows
special note for an earthquake the shaking starts1
Special Note for an Earthquake:The shaking starts…
  • Do you know what to do outside –
    • Take cover away from any falling hazards (buildings, power lines, trees, etc) – crash position
  • Do you go into the building after the shaking starts if you are outside? Yes, if safe to do so!

Practice an Evacuation!

  • Do a walk-through of your steps
