Partial Building Evacuation:
This is the most common evacuation type at Highline at Greensboro District. When an alarm is generated, the floor affected and one (1) floor above and below the affected floor will go into alarm (audible message with strobes flashing). The occupants of these floors will immediately go to the nearest stairwell and completely exit the building. All Fire Wardens shall report to building management that their floor/suite is clear.
Full Building Evacuation:
If a full building evacuation is necessary, the audible devices and strobes will be initiated on every floor. All building occupants will immediately go to the nearest stairwell and completely exit the buildings. All Fire Wardens should go through their assigned procedures and then report to a Building Management Representative that their floor/suite is clear.
Certain emergencies may arise that call for the relocation of occupants to another part of the building. These emergencies may be the result of a bomb threat, fire alarm, severe weather alert or when it is not feasible to exit the building. The evacuation/relocation route will be announced over the emergency paging system. The route may vary with each type of emergency incident. Therefore, it is very important for building occupants to listen carefully to all emergency paging system messages.
Shelter in Place:
As with occupant relocation, a shelter in place method may be used to protect building occupants. These instructions will be announced over the emergency paging system. The instructions may vary with each type of emergency, therefore, it is very important for building occupants to listen carefully to all emergency paging system messages.
Please refer to the Emergency Responsibilities section of this handbook for detailed instructions and procedures and to learn your role in building emergencies.
Each tenant should set up a designated meeting site far enough away from the property as to not interfere with emergency response personnel and equipment.
