Campus Fire Evacuation Procedures

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Question: Why is it necessary to report to a muster area after evacuating a building ? Does it really matter where we go as long as we get out of the building ?

Answer: Meeting at a designated evacuation muster area is important because it enables rescue personnel to go to a single area and account for individuals who might not have made it out of the building, thereby enabling a more targeted search and rescue operation. If someone fails to muster at their assigned area, rescue personnel might receive information that someone may be inside the building, when in fact they are outside the building at another location.
