* (Primary Area of Refuge is located where there is no exit at grade level and should have a closing door, a phone for communication, and supplies that enable the person(s) to block smoke from entering under the door. If possible, they also should have a window so that evacuees can signal their location.)
In circumstances where evacuation is not possible, and a Primary Area of Refuge has not been identified, a person with a disability should SHELTER-In-PLACE and inform the Building Coordinator and at least two other evacuees of their location. This information is to be provided immediately to the Public Safety Department. If a telephone is available to the person with a disability sheltering in place, they should call the Public Safety Department at (305) 628-6500 to confirm their location and provide details regarding their current situation and identify their request for accommodation. Individuals with mobility impairments should only be carried out of a building in case of a life threatening emergency. This presents a risk not only for the person with a disability, but also the "good Samaritans" or buddies who have agreed to assist the individual. Executing both of these types of evacuation techniques require extensive training by emergency evacuation professionals.
