6 Building Marshal s Duties Lead Building Marshal Manage Building Marshals and maintain control of occupants. Last person off the floor in an evacuation or relocation. In evacuation, ensure that the door to sidewalk / relocated floor is closed. Notify Public Safety that evacuation / relocation is complete. Go to the designated assembly point and conduct a head count of the evacuees from your floor or building. Report the count to Public Safety. Give first aid if necessary, if trained and wait for further instructions. Deputy Building Marshal Assume the duties of the Lead Building Marshal in his/her absence. Perform all tasks as assigned by the Lead Building Marshal. Search Monitor Search all enclosed spaces and restrooms to ensure occupants have left the floor. Work in pairs, if possible, to avoid repetitive searching and losing track of each other. Keep calm and set the example. Know the location of fire extinguishers, pull stations, and exits. Inform the Lead Building Marshal when the floor is evacuated. Relocation Monitor Direct personnel away from elevator lobbies and toward exit stairwells. Begin relocation when directed by alarm or announcement. Make certain that the relocation path is clear and position yourself at the lower door to direct traffic. If possible, report to Lead Building Marshal before exiting, and do NOT prop the relocation floor door open. Assist the Lead Building Marshal in any way directed. Disability Assistant The disable person should be allowed to pick their assigned assistant. The Disability Assistant and disabled person should know the location of the department exit stairwells.
7 Emergency Response Procedures January 2015 In a fire emergency, the Disability Assistant will accompany the disabled person to the exit location. The Assistant will place their charge away from the path of travel of exiting occupants and await the arrival of the first responders. Alert Public Safety of your presence in the stairwell. The Disability Assistant will remain with their charge until first responders arrive. For their own safety, individuals in wheelchairs should remain in the fresh air stairwell with an Assistant until trained fire department personnel can carry them down the stairs. If properly trained, the Assistant may use an evacuation device located in the stairwell, if available. Work Together as Building Emergency Teams It is vital that Building Marshals unite as a team within the building you work. Department Marshals will work with other departments in the building until all floors are represented. Form a Building Emergency Team Organize Building Marshals that work in each building into a unified team. Each team should select a Building Leader and alternate. In an emergency, they will serve as the building s Emergency Director and oversee the incident. Assign specific Building Marshal duties above to the other members. Meet with the Team to decide who will be the Lead Building Marshal on each floor. Also, ensure that each floor or building has the following Marshals: o Search Monitor o Disability Assistant o Stair Monitors o Relocation Monitor A floor with two Building Marshals can split these duties Search Monitor and Disability Assistant / Stair Monitor. After the initial search phase, the Search Monitor may then serve as a Relocation Monitor and lead floor occupants to relocation site. Additional Items to Remember for Building Emergency Teams Know the people who work in your immediate area. Identify occupants that may require special assistance in an emergency. Maintain an up-to-date list of all mobility-impaired persons on the floor. Make a wallet contact card with cell phone numbers for each Building Marshal Team. Know the location of the fire extinguishers and how to use them. Take emergency training, including first aid, CPR, and Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) classes (voluntary). Know the location of any first aid cabinets and emergency supplies. Know the location of stairwell exits and a direct route to each. Know the relocation site and routes to the site.

If in a corridor or elevator lobby, sit on the floor and brace your back against the wall. Shelter-in-place unless there is obvious structural damage. It is safer inside than outside because of external hazards such as downed power lines, trees, falling brick, or glass. Control visitors. Post-Earthquake Building Marshal Duties: Secure, rescue, and head count. Remain calm and help others. Check for injuries. Give first aid, if trained. Report injuries and damage to Public Safety. Establish communications, both internal and external. Await further instruction and information from Public Safety and first responders. What to Do in a Medical Emergency: Do not move the person. Call x2911 from a University phone or from a non-university phone. Give Public Safety Dispatch the following information: o Who and where o Building name and location o Building address o Cross streets o Floor and room number o Nature of the emergency o Your call-back number Try to make the victim comfortable. If you are trained in first aid or CPR, assist as needed. Gather as much information as you can about the person and the injury (signs/symptoms and complaints of the victim). Have someone at the service elevator lobby on the floor to meet the University s Public Safety Officers or Paramedics and direct them where needed.
