At Work


  • Read your company’s evacuation plan! Note the designated meeting locations for after an evacuation.
  • Each time you enter a room, take note of the exit routes and locations of fire extinguisher and medical kits.
  • Note locations of stairways as you walk from location to location.
  • Keep your own personal supplies in your desk in a single pack of some kind that you can access quickly. Along with your supplies, store a pair of walking shoes.
  • Be sure you have composed a card to carry in your wallet or purse with important phone numbers and emergency contact person.
  • Keep the area under your desk free of waste-paper baskets and the like. This area might be home during a few traumatic moments.
  • If you are not at your desk when something happens, don’t count on being able to make it back. Store additional supplies in your car.
