Stay in your classroom or office for approximately twenty minutes following a power outage. Often, power outages are brief and power is restored in less than twenty minutes. After twenty minutes and power is not restored, evacuate the building. If the power outage lasts longer than twenty minutes, it is likely the outage could be prolonged.
Persons with disabilities - go to stairway landings and wait for emergency rescue personnel. Upon their arrival, emergency personnel responding to the building will be checking the stairway landings for persons with disabilities. Stay together as a group. If possible, have someone stay behind with persons with disabilities until emergency personnel arrive.
Remain calm and walk - do not run.
Keep at least 100 feet from the buildings and from emergency vehicles.
