Below, the School offers procedures and recommendations for alerting, evacuating, or sheltering persons with disabilities located in the Manhattan School of Music buildings and on campus during an emergency. Every member of the School community has a responsibility to facilitate the safe evacuation and sheltering of persons with disabilities by adhering to the following guidelines.
The School recognizes that individuals with disabilities may require assistance with alerting, evacuating, and sheltering in the event of an emergency. The School therefore asks all individuals who may need assistance in an emergency to consider all or some of the following options for preparing for an emergency:
Confidential Self-Identification Form
Any person with disabilities who will need assistance during an emergency evacuation and might be in a building after regular work hours, or at times when others are not usually present, should also strongly consider notifying Campus Safety of his or her location, including the building, floor, room, and time of arrival and departure.
REMEMBER: elevators are never to be used in the event of a fire without explicit authorization by fire or police personnel.
