Emergency Response Plan

The Department of Geography has developed a Building Emergency Response Plan, according to UBC standards. The objective of this plan is to ensure the safety of the building occupants through:

  • Fire Prevention – to reduce and prevent the incidence of fire by controlling fire hazards in the building and by maintaining the building facilities;
  • Emergency Evaluation – to establish a systemic method of safe and orderly evaluation of an area or building, in case of fire or other emergency.
  • To provide a checklist of procedures for responding to, and reporting, an emergency.
  • To assist with recruiting and training of emergency directors, floor wardens, and first aid attendants.
