Even if the alarm stops after a short while, evacuation must continue until emergency response personnel give an all-clear signal.
As you evacuate the building, move to the designated assembly areas as directed by floor wardens. Please do not stop and gather immediately outside the building exits as this causes congestion as masses of students and employees attempt to evacuate behind you.
Every member of the Douglas College community is encouraged to assist in the safe evacuation of persons with disabilities.
All students, employees and visitors should know where the Areas of Refuge are and at least two routes to exit the building in the event of an emergency evacuation.
