Emergency Evacuation Procedures

These emergency evacuation procedures are intended for anyone with a permanent or temporary disability who is unable to evacuate a building via the stairwell. Please contact Disability Resources if you have specific concerns.

Please review RDC's Emergency Procedures.


Individuals are expected to take responsibility for their personal safety.  If you need help making a safety plan, please see your Disability Resources Coordinator. Please take the following steps to ensure that you are prepared for an emergency situation:

  • Familiarize yourself with the building(s) you frequent. Identify yourself to your instructors / supervisors.
  • In each building, the staff and security are responsible for the evacuation of all individuals. Contact Security at the beginning of each term with your class/study schedule in these buildings.
  • Initiate a "buddy" system with a classmate to assist in case of emergency.

In an Emergency Situation

  1. Proceed to the nearest Fire Exit Stairwell and, if there is no immediate danger, wait adjacent to the stairwell until the main flow of people has passed. Fire Exit Stairwells are fire rated and provide a safe refuge area — persons waiting in the stairwell will be reasonably safe until evacuated. It is advisable to have your "buddy" wait with you.
  2. Make your presence known to Security personnel. Security can be identified by the yellow vests they wear during an emergency evacuation.
  3. If there is no Security personnel in the area, locate the nearest telephone, call 403.343.4000, and inform them of your exact location.
  4. If there is no telephone, ask someone who is evacuating to inform the responding Emergency Services of your location.

Under no circumstance should elevators be used to evacuate, unless assisted by the Fire Department.

By remembering these simple procedures, you will be able to better react during an emergency.

If you have any questions, please contact Disability Resources by email at or phone 403.357.3629.
