Annual Emergency Evacuation Drills Scheduled on Campus

By: Cienna Madrid   Published 7:39 am / September 12, 2017

Boise State’s Environmental Health Safety and Sustainability team has begun annual emergency evacuation drills. Drills will be conducted at 10:20 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays over an eight-week period. Disruptions to campus will be lessened by spreading drill times over several weeks and conducting at most two per day.

Emergency evacuation drills are conducted in university facilities on a periodic basis as required by the International Fire Code and Idaho General Safety and Health Standards. The purpose is to prepare occupants for an orderly evacuation in case of fire or other emergency. Drills are used to familiarize occupants with evacuation procedures, location of emergency exits and the sound of the audio alert tones. Drills may also identify alarm system deficiencies, inadequate evacuation planning and procedures, and additional training and equipment requirements.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All drill times are approximate and unforeseen circumstances may result in a drill being cancelled and rescheduled. Some facilities have special scheduling requirements and may not appear on the schedule.

Please contact Randy Bunnis with any questions or concerns at (208) 426-1482.
