Event planners should meet with building coordinators to get general emergency information about the event venues.
Prior to starting your event, you should consider how the needs of people with disabilities will be handled in an emergency. When planning an event on campus, please remember:
- All on-site staff should be informed of emergency evacuation procedures.
- Elevators will not be available during an evacuation. If a participant is unable to exit the building, an approved safe shelter should be identified, and communicated to participants. A staff person should be identified who will inform first responders of the location of the participant who remained in the building.
