Evacuation Procedures

Even though the scope of an evacuation is event specific, below is some general information to follow.
Evacuation notifications will be posted through Emory Emergency Notification System.

Building Evacuation

Each Emory building has a fire evacuation plan, and you should follow this plan in the event you are told to evacuate your building. Assemble in the designated areas, and wait for further information.

Entire Campus Evacuation

In the event that the entire Emory campus must be evacuated:

  • If you can provide your own transportation, you should prepare to leave campus and return to your home or other safe and appropriate intermediate destination unless told otherwise.
  • If you are not able to provide your own transportation, you will be directed where transportation buses will be provided to shuttle you to a staging area until shelter can be arranged.

For fire evacuation, please refer to the Fire/Fire Extinguisher card and your building evacuation plan.
