Event planners should meet with building coordinators to get general emergency information about the event venues.
You should consider how the special needs of people with disabilities will be handled in an emergency.
- All on-site staff should be informed of emergency evacuation procedures.
- Elevators will not be available during an evacuation. If a participant is unable to exit the building, a staff person should be identified who will inform first responders of the location of the participant who remained in the building.
