Building Evacuation Plans

The Building Evacuation Plans has been designed to help building occupants to safely evacuate the building in the event of a fire, explosion, spill, or other emergency situation.

There are several UMass Boston departments involved in building evacuations. The office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), in collaboration with building occupants, the Department of Public Safety, and the Office of Emergency Management, has developed this plan based upon the unique characteristics of the building.

If occupants are familiar with evacuation procedures, then threats to life and property will be minimized in the event of an emergency.

If you have any questions concerning this plan or would like assistance, contact Fire and Life Safety Officer Debra Gursha at 617.287.5445 or via email at
