Spring & Fall 2014 Testing of emergency procedures
As part of Temple’s ongoing commitment to emergency preparedness and becomingTU Ready, a mandatory annual evacuation drill will be conducted for all buildings that are occupied by students and/or employees. Emergency response and evacuation procedures will be tested and evaluated during these drills. During each exercise students and employees will: (1) practice evacuation procedures and efficient building clearance; (2) familiarize themselves with the location of exits and rallying points; (3) recognize the needs of students and colleagues who may require special assistance; and (4) spread the word to the university community about what it means to beTU Ready. For questions about building evacuation procedures or to schedule fire safety training and drills contact the Office of the Fire Marshal: (215) 204-8687
