Individuals with special needs and/or a disability who may need assistance during an evacuation or other emergency are encouraged to self-identify and discuss with staff in advance who might assist them in leaving the building and/or who will inform emergency personnel of their presence and where they are located so that further assistance can be provided.


Transporting of individuals with a disability up or down stairwells should be avoided without the assistance of emergency response personnel. Unless imminent life-threatening conditions exist in the immediate area occupied by a disabled person, relocation of the individual should be limited to an area of refuge on the same floor separated by a set of closed fire doors preferably in close proximity to an evacuation stairwell.
