EHS Fire Protection Division is dedicated to keeping all occupants of university buildings safe during an emergency. Emergency evacuation maps are a quick an easy guide for all building users to reference all possible evacuation routes and building gathering points prior to an unlikely event that the need to evacuate a building, in a safe and efficient matter, arises. The maps are created and posted following the guidelines of The National Fire Protection Association, The International Fire Code, and the Occupational Safety and Health Association. All new University buildings will have emergency evacuation maps posted throughout the space prior to opening. All existing University buildings will need to be updated as necessary as seen by the EHS department or by a request of the building manager. Emergency Evacuation maps are another valuable tool to help keep the University of Delaware safe and to prevent any loss of life.
