I am unable to use the stairwell to evacuate the building because of a temporary or permanent mobility restriction. What do I do? Can I use the elevator to leave the building?

In the event of a fire alarm and building evacuation, do not use the elevator to evacuate. Proceed to an “Assisted Evacuation Staging Area” and call 911 or, if at University Park, call 814-863-1111 and let campus police dispatchers know that there is an alarm situation where you are located (floor and building). If you are unsure where the assisted evacuation staging area is, they can be found by looking at an emergency evacuation map located on each floor of the building. These areas are colored in pink and are either in a stairwell or close to one.
