If any emergency arises that requires an evacuation of a building or group of buildings, the emergency evacuation alarm will be used. If you are in a campus facility and the building evacuation alarm is activated, stop what you are doing, depart the building from the closest available exit, report to the building's assembly area and wait for further instructions from a university official. Please refer to your building's emergency policy poster for detailed information or contact Louis P. Alar at 202-319-5789.
