Emergency Building Managers (Training)
Administrators and staff members have been trained to server as Emergency Building Managers (EBM), Evacuation Supervisors and Emergency Floor Wardens and Searchers (EFWS) in each building on campus. In the event of an emergency, the EBM, Evacuation Supervisors and EFWS assist Fire Safety Director from Public Safety in disseminating information in their building. Each EMB, Evacuation Supervisors and EFWS are trained with updated information annually by the Fire Safety Director of the Public Safety Department.
EBMs and EFWSs have been trained in “Evacuation” and “Shelter in Place” procedures. Our Evacuation Supervisors are trained Fire Safety Director with certifications from the Fire Department within the Public Safety Department. They have been issued red and yellow emergency protocal cards and will wear a high visibility orange vest in an emergency in order for first responder to identify them and make contact.
A Fire Safety Director on duty will contact the EMB and EFWS and Evacuation Supervisors provide them with instructions regarding the nature of the emergency and whether the occupants of that building should “Evacuate” or “Shelter in Place.”
