Stairwell Safety Instructions

  1. Move quickly, but do not run.
  2. Remove high-heeled shoes if they will hinder your evacuation.
  3. Keep to the outside of the stairwell.
  4. Allow room for others to enter in an orderly flow of traffic but do not hold up traffic unnecessarily.
  5. Dispel any false information and/or rumors.
  6. Gain assistance for those who are slower moving or physically disabled.
  7. Treat any injuries incurred in the stairwell at the nearest floor landing when required and if practical.
  8. Do not bring food or drinks into the stairwells. They may spill and cause a safety hazard to others evacuating.
