Building Evacution Procedures
Keep Yourself and Others Calm
- Shut down equipment that could become unstable or present a hazard.
- Gather your personal belongings such as glasses, prescription medicine, keys, purse.
- Touch closed doors before opening. If the surface is hot, do not open -- use another exit route.
- Quickly move to the outside of the building using the nearest door marked with an "EXIT" sign.
- Close, but do not lock, all doors as you leave. Take your keys with you.
- Do not use the elevators. Proceed to the nearest safe stairway.
- Be certain all persons in the area are evacuated immediately. Keep a list of all laboratory personnel near the exit of the lab/office that can easily be accessed and taken out of the building during an emergency. Use this list as a checklist to ensure all persons are out of the building. Advise emergency response personnel of any missing individuals.
- Help those who need special assistance - disabled, small children, etc.
- Report immediately to the designated "safe area" located near the building (please refer to the Region 2 map).
- Report any missing individuals and last known locations to emergency responders.
- Notify emergency responders about sensitive research, operating equipment, animals left in buildings, etc.
- For Computer Science and Engineering, meet on Warren mall just south of the building.
- Wait for instructions from emergency response personnel. Do not re-enter the building.
During Heavy Shaking
- Quickly take cover under a desk/table or crouch in a corner away from large surfaces. Expect, at least, 30 seconds of strong shaking.
- After the shaking has subsided, quickly evacuate the building, using the stairs, to the designated gathering area on Warren mall just south of the building (see Region 2 map).
- Personnel will not be allowed to return to their work area until the building has been structurally inspected.
In Case of a Small Fire
- Grab the nearest fire extinguisher. Make sure you have an unobstructed exit available to you.
- Pull the finger pin located in the extinguisher's handle.
- Aim the nozzle at the BASE of the fire.
- Squeeze the handles, sweeping the nozzle from side to side until the fire is out.
In case of a Large Fire
- Pull the fire alarm and call UCSD Police.
- From a University phone: 911
- From a cell phone: 534-HELP 
- Alert people in the area to begin evacuation. Assist those with disabilities.
- Close doors to confine the fire.
- Move to your designated assembly area away and upwind from the building.
- Have persons knowledgeable about the incident and location assist emergency personnel.
