2018 Annual Evacuation Drill Summary

2018 Annual Evacuation Drill Summary Report 

Last year's annual evacuation drills were conducted at University of Calgary campuses over a period of ten days in September. The drills were facilitated by the Emergency Management team with assistance from observer volunteers from across campus including Risk, Human Resources, Finance, Information Technology, Residence Services, University Relations, Kinesiology, Facilities- LifeSafety, and Emergency Wardens.

Evacuations occurred at all fifty-three regularly occupied buildings on the university campuses. The Child Care Centers are drilled monthly and residence buildings are drilled twice a year.

This year there was a notable improvement in basic housekeeping. During evacuation drills there were less incidents of equipment obstructing egress. Clear paths were reported to the hose cabinets and fire extinguishers.
