Evacuation for People w/Disabilities - Wayne

Paterson Campus Park

Evacuation for People with Disabilities (Wayne)


After an evacuation is ordered:


• Check on people with special needs during an evacuation.  A buddy system, in which people with disabilities arrange for volunteers to alert them and assist them in an emergency, is a good method.


• Always ask someone with a disability how you can help before attempting any rescue technique or giving assistance.  Ask how he or she can best be assisted or moved and whether there are any special considerations or items that need to come with the person.


• If the situation is life threatening, call the Administrative Office at 973-304-6020  or Dial 911 and state your name, location and area involved to the office personnel or the police dispatcher.
