Evacuation Drill Scheduled for Oct. 10

The Office of Risk Management will conduct the annual evacuation drill at The University of Texas System Building on Thursday, October 10, 2019, beginning at 9:30 am. All employees and tenants will participate.  UT Austin Fire Prevention Services and the City of Austin Fire Department will assist with the drill.

If you have any concerns about your ability to participate in the drill, please inform your Department Safety Liaison (DSL) and Natasha Rogers, UT System's safety specialist, at nrogers@utsystem.edu.  They will provide special instructions to follow during the drill and will make sure your name is on the list of employees with mobility impairments that is provided to first responders.

While the drill may cause some inconvenience, evacuation drills are an important part of UT System's emergency preparedness plan and are required by the National Fire Prevention Association and the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
