Help others, especially the injured and persons who are disabled, evacuate the building.
Once outside, move to the designated evacuation zone for your building. If this area is deemed unsafe; your Building Coordinator or Zone Captain will designate an alternate site. Keep the walkways clear for emergency vehicles.
