Building Evacuation Information

Campus Emergencies:  CPSO:  503-725-4404

Building Evacuation Procedure

  • Leave the building immediately when when Alarm Sounds or Prompted to Evacuate
  • Exits are marked in all buildings; use the nearest one if safe to do so.
  • Do not use elevators when evacuating a building.
  • Personnel should move at least 100 feet from the building - know your egress point!
  • Call 911 to report the alarm or hazard.
  • Do not re-enter the building until fire, police or emergency personnel give permission to do so.
For many PSU buildings, Fire Wardens will facilitate evacuation in the event of an emergency.  Residents halls are not on this list because evacuations of these buildings are handled and coordinated by Resident Assitants (RA's).
