    IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY that requires IMMEDIATE assistance from police, fire, or ambulance what number do you call?

      Your Mom. She always has good advice during an emergency.

    • D.

      I'm not sure, but I always conference with my fellow coworkers before making any decision, and then we talk about it VERY loudly on the way to the muster site. We know this drill, and we don't need to hear the PA system.

    There is a BOMB THREAT and they have called for a total buildng evacuation.  Oh my goodness.  You need to get out, and you need to get out fast.  You grab the emergency flyer, your car keys, the laptop, your cell phone...(okay now, don't forget this is an EMERGENCY).  You exit the building. Where do you go?

    • A.

      The 12th street parking lot. Thank goodness you got out fast

    • B.

      I'm a resident of the 3rd floor. I know that for a total building evac I need to go to the corner of Truman and Holmes and look for my department so that I can muster.

    • C.

      It is a beautiful day out. This evac may not be a bad thing. There is a Latteland AND a Starbuck on the corner of 12th and Main St. I might head up there, grab an iced tea, and enjoy the sunshine on my face. I'll muster by phone.

      The ground floor. Didn't someone mention the ground floor somewhere, at some time, during an ALL STAFF?

      Ask the caller to hold while you locate the bomb threat procedures. You remember that floor warden sent them electronically at some point. Now, if you can only find them.

Thank goodness you listened to your floor warden and printed out the flyer for emergency procedures where bomb threat procedures are located. You alert your cube mate to call the Federal Police at the Mega Center (conveniently located under his phone handle at 1-877-4-FPS-411).

These visual cues will help the person identify individuals who are likely part of the same group or evacuation process.

    There is a fire in the building and the 3rd floor has been evacuated.  You are assisting a staff member who has a cane.  He can use the elevator right?

    • A.

      No. What if the doors open on the floor of the fire, or even worse, the electrical system shuts down and you end up trapped! Use the stairs and assist your co-worker down, but don't leave them.

    • B.

      Yes. We are only on the third floor. Should only take a second to get downstairs.

    • C.

      No. I know better. I will help them to the stairwell, and then I will tell them to call me when they get to the muster site

    • D.

      Yes, but he must use the freight elevator if there is a fire.

    Correct Answer
    A. No. What if the doors open on the floor of the fire, or even worse, the electrical system shuts down and you end up trapped! Use the stairs and assist your co-worker down, but don't leave them.
    Explanation
    Using the elevator during a fire can be dangerous because there is a risk of the doors opening on the floor of the fire or the electrical system shutting down, which could lead to being trapped. It is safer to use the stairs and assist the co-worker down while ensuring not to leave them alone.
