Campus Information - Emergency Evacuation

Emergency Evacuation Points

Emergency Evacuation Points have been strategically located throughout the campus as points where people needing assistance can gather. Every sign has a location code which consists of a letter and one or two numbers. These indicate the Wing the person is in, the floor level and the location of the sign.

Evacuation point sign: a red circle and white arrow shape, with a location code.

In the event of a fire or other emergency persons who cannot gain access to an outside exit should stage themselves at one of the evacuation points and have the University Police advised of their location. This can be done in one of three ways:

  • Have a responsible person tell the Police of the location
  • By activating the fire alarm (pull station) near the Emergency Evacuation Sign
  • By calling if there is a phone nearby or use a cell phone as a backup (Note: Please note cell phones do not work in all areas of the campus)

The University Police have a full listing of the location points and either they or the fire department will respond to the location as soon as possible.

Emergency Evacuation Chairs have been placed throughout the campus for use by the Toronto Fire Department to transfer persons with mobility devices using stairs.
