Accessibility Services: Emergency Procedures

If this applies to you, please schedule an appointment with a Accessibility Services staff person to review emergency evacuation procedures and locations of emergency assistance buttons as soon as you schedule classes.

Emergency personnel will provide evacuation of those individuals who have proceeded to the rescue assistance areas.
