The Building Safety Supervisors and Monitors are the individuals that Administration depends on to help Bellevue University react to an emergency. For example, if a building catches on fire, the Building Safety Supervisor and Monitors are the individuals that will work in great speed and detail to go through every area, funnel everyone out of the building, and go to the rally point. In the event of a Tornado, the Building Safety Supervisors are the individuals that will work in great speed and detail to funnel everyone in the building to the Tornado shelters. These individuals are a significant asset to creating a secure culture at Bellevue University.
In the event of an evacuation, keep yourself and the public as calm as possible.
Reference and Circulation staff members are responsible for evacuating all patrons from all public areas: refreshment area, bathrooms, study tables, computer workstations, group study rooms, periodical (quiet) reading area and classroom 460.
The Library Director (or designee) is responsible for evacuating all staff, visitors, etc., from library office areas.
The Library is part of the Blue Team. Library employees should rally at the corner of Galvin Road and Lloyd Street in the Administration Building parking lot. At the rally point, the staff members should be counted to ensure that all are safe. A rally point map is posted on the library’s bulletin board and in Appendix B of this plan.
On evenings and weekends, all Reference and Circulation staff members are responsible for evacuating all patrons and other staff from the building. If possible, they should verify that all persons are evacuated from the Learning Commons, Faculty offices, Classroom 480, the Conference Room and the hallway bathrooms.
