Building Evacuation

Announcements of the need to evacuate a building are made over the building PA system and Emergency Start Alert System.

Unless instructions are given not to use elevators, persons with disabilities should use the building elevators to reach the ground floor. Able-bodied persons capable of using stairs should avoid the elevators, making the elevators more available to persons with disabilities.

In the event elevators cannot be used, persons with disabilities should go to stairway landings and wait for emergency rescue personnel. Emergency personnel responding to the building will be checking the stairway landings for persons with disabilities upon their arrival.

Stay together as a group. Notify LCC Police (dial 911 from a college phone or (517) 483-1800 from a non-college phone) of any persons with disabilities requiring assistance. If possible, have someone stay behind with persons with disabilities until emergency personnel arrive.

Remain calm and walk - do not run.

Once outside the building, keep at least 100 feet from the building and any emergency vehicles.

Stay outside the building until police or fire personnel have given an "All Clear" announcement.
