Mobility-Impaired Occupants Evacuation Procedures
A mobility-impaired person is defined as anyone who requires assistance down the stairwells. This may be of a permanent or temporary nature. Examples of mobility-impaired conditions are: heart condition, broken leg, pregnancy, and non-ambulatory etc.
All mobility-impaired occupants of TransCanada Tower and the Fire Wardens should:
- Make sure that the floor Fire Warden has been made aware of any mobility-impaired occupants so that they will receive the assistance required;
- The company administration should keep the mobility-impaired list updated regularly. The list must be in the possession of the Fire Warden;
- The Fire Warden, in conjunction with the mobility-impaired person, must choose as many people as required to assist in the evacuation. The people chosen should be capable of handling mobility-impaired persons;
- Have the mobility-impaired personal assistants move or guide them (if necessary) to the fire phone in the elevator lobby, or it becomes unsafe, into the stairwell. If told to evacuate your floor, wait for the main flow of people to pass before starting to descend;
- Follow the instructions of the Wardens and let them know if you have any problems. They can get in contact with the Fire Department or Security for assistance.
