There are a number of situations that may require the evacuation of a building at ÉTS. Here is the procedure to follow if an emergency measure requires an evacuation.

When you hear the fire alarm or when Security orders an evacuation

  • Remain calm;
  • Move directly to the nearest emergency exit and leave the building;
  • Do not use the elevators;
  • Do not make a detour to collect your personal effects;
  • Go directly to the assigned meeting point for your building;
  • Do not go back inside the building for any reason.

Persons with reduced mobility

A member of the evacuation team will help you get to the proper stairwell for the floor you are on. A member of the intervention team will then be assigned to help you.

  • Pavilion A: stairwell A-E28
  • Pavilion B: stairwell B-E6
  • Pavilion E: stairwell E-E3
  • Pavilion D: stairwell D-E1

Ensure that the emergency exit is safe before using it. If it is not safe, use a different emergency exit

  • Use the back of your hand to determine whether the door is hot;
  • Verify whether there is smoke present;
  • Verify whether there is a suspicious odour (natural gas).

Return to the building

  • Authorization to return to the building will be communicated at the meeting point.
