What it means to “Evacuate"
The movement of persons from a dangerous, or potentially dangerous place, to a safe place. Examples are the evacuation of a building due to a bomb threat or fire. In an extreme situation (e.g., a flood), large portions of, and perhaps the entire campus may be required to evacuate.

How will I know to “Evacuate"
An evacuation notification may come from several sources, including the fire alarm system, BUPD, Campus Living & Learning Staff, other University employees, or other authorities utilizing the University’s emergency communications tools.
