Building Evacuations

Building evacuations plans are designed to assist Northwestern building occupants with safely evacuating the building in the event of a fire, explosion, spill, or other emergency. If employees and students are familiar with evacuation procedures, then threats to safety and health will be minimized in the event of an emergency.

Unless you are in immediate danger, stay at your designated assembly area and await further instruction from the authorities, such as fire or police department. Never re-enter the building until authorities have announced that it is safe to do so.
