Evacuation of the Disabled

General Information on emergency procedures can be found on the Crisis Procedures page.

Emergency Evacuation Assistance (Persons with Disabilities)

Persons with disabilities (and others whose movement may be impaired, e.g. broken leg, etc.) should pre-arrange with someone in their immediate area to assist them, e.g. classmate or instructor. In the event that person is not present, anyone in the immediate area should:

  1. Ensure the person with a disability is directed or assisted to a safe area, evacuation point, stairwell or another building. Consult the person about their specific limitation and the best way to provide assistance.
  2. Emergency personnel should be informed of the location of the person needing assistance.
  3. Evacu-Trac chairs are available in multiple level buildings. Their locations are discussed further in this page. These manual evacuation chairs should be used when the person can effectively transfer into the chair and other person(s) are available to maneuver the chair downstairs. The Evacu-Trac should only be used if conditions warrant inability to wait for emergency personnel to arrive/assist.

If you would like more information on how the Evacu-Trac works, please visit the Garaventa website.

Evacu-Trac Locations

An Evacu-Trac is used to transport persons who are unable to walk (e.g. using a wheelchair) down the stairs in cases where evacuation is called for. Evacu-Trac locations are listed and illustrated on the map. In each case the Evacu-Trac is located on the wall in a box (a picture is provided at the top of this page) or leaning up against the wall.
