Scope of Building Marshals Program

The Building Marshal Program is an essential element in the campus Emergency Preparedness Plan.

Building Marshals are responsible for assisting in the safe and orderly evacuation of campus facilities and buildings in the event of a disaster, preventing re-entry, and reporting injuries and probable locations of trapped individuals to campus authorities. The information provided to these individuals will aid in establishing search and rescue priorities.

The Responsibilities of the campus Building Marshal Program are four fold.

  1. First, when prompted by a drill or real emergency situation, assist in the orderly evacuation of the building population from the structure.
  2. Second, secure building entrances, direct personnel 100 feet from the building, and deny re-entry until informed by authority that it is safe to do so.
  3. Third, report building status to University Police at established locations (i.e., fully evacuated, location of trapped or injured individuals, etc...) see attachment #1.
  4. Fourth, if necessary, assist in the movement of persons to indicated campus evacuation staging area(s) see attachment #2.
