Site Evacuation Coordinators,
With the Legislature soon to be in town, we want to make sure that the
document at the DAS Emergency Evacuation Planning web site is up-to-date. We
endeavor to update it monthly - last update being this morning. There are
two important dates per building in the Capitol Mall area.
* The date of your building's last earthquake drill.
(Earthquake drills were mandated by the 2001 Legislature to be annually. The
drill is generally initiated by blowing a whistle followed by "drop, cover,
and hold." A building evacuation is optional.)
* The date of your building's last evacuation drill.
(The RisKey document, Sound The Alarm, calls for one building-wide
evacuation per year. Since a fire is the most likely emergency event, we
suggest you choose the evacuation be a fire drill at least every other year.
If you prepare for emergencies according to Sound The Alarm, your building
will meet the requirements of the local fire department and OR-OSHA rules.)
Check out the top link at this site. Contact me if there is information that
needs to be updated.
If you have not yet done it, check out other the sources of information
available at this site.
