Campus Wide Evacuation
The procedures for a campus-wide evacuation will vary, depending on the nature of the incident. In cases when the decision has been made to evacuate, the campus will likely be evacuated in stages, beginning with the areas that are in the immediate vicinity of the incident. Other areas may then be evacuated, depending on the nature of the incident. This graduated evacuation is preferable to a total, immediate evacuation, as it identifies the populations most in danger, minimizes the likelihood of gridlock and congestion, and provides for emergency vehicles access and first responder personnel.
