Designated Meeting Areas East Liverpool
During a building fire, firefighters must determine as soon as possible whether or not all occupants have escaped. If not, they will attempt a rescue placing themselves at great risk of serious injury. Therefore, it is important to account for all individuals and for each person to report to a designated meeting area.
If a meeting area has not been designated, the following areas should be used to meet:
- Occupants should meet outdoors on the upwind (usually west) side of the building. The meeting place should be at a safe distance and clear of emergency responders, their vehicles, and equipment. If another location is designated, building evacuees will be notified at the scene
- Main Building nearest parking lot
- Mary Patterson Building - Alumni Clock Tower
