Emergency Evacuation

Emergency Evacuation Procedures

Trigger the manual pull station to activate the fire alarm if you discover a fire, smoke or a strong smell of burning.

If it is safe and you are trained to do so, use the correct extinguisher to put out the fire.
Close all doors behind you and evacuate the building at the sound of the alarm.
Evacuate via the nearest emergency exit, use the stairs, and move forward in a swift, orderly fashion.
Do not use the elevators.
Follow the instructions of the Evacuation Team, Fire Department, and McGill emergency responders. 

If it is safe to do so, offer assistance to persons with disabilities, special needs, or immediate, temporary or longer term limitations. Click here for more information.

Inform the Fire Department of people needing assistance once outside.

Go to your designated meeting point as directed by the Evacuation Team. Keep away from the building façades and keep the path clear for emergency vehicles.
