The University Police Department is responsible for the overall campus evacuation procedure and serves as the focal point in any emergency for assistance and coordinating outside services as delineated in the Emergency Operations Plan.
University Police Department serves as the recipient of the evacuation status of each individual building as reported by individual Building Marshals. They will direct assistance in search and rescue of outside services as required.
Facilities Services associates are trained to respond during emergency situations and assist University Police Department with security and communication at University perimeter entry/exit points. Associates may assist with the dissemination of printed information relating to an emergency, assist with facility maintenance needs, and provide ongoing support for recovery efforts.
These individuals are responsible for obtaining the evacuation status of their buildings in terms of assistance needed, building status, or any other critical informational needs. Building Marshals station themselves in pre-assigned locations to obtain information from their Evacuation Monitors. As soon as the status of their evacuation is known they forward this information to University Police Department. Their primary responsibility is the evacuation of people from their buildings and the reporting of this information to University Police Department. They are not responsible for active search and rescue or any form of building remediation.
These individuals are responsible for the timely and orderly evacuation of their buildings occupants. They direct occupants to the proper exit and redirect occupants to secondary exits as necessary. They are responsible for making quick checks of rooms and reporting any assistance needs to the Building Marshal upon exiting. These individuals are not responsible for search and rescue or other related tasks, but serve to provide needed information to their Building Marshals.
