Please see the attached map of emergency exits located within the Athabasca Regional Mulitplex.
  • All guests within the school will leave in an orderly fashion. Please move to a location well away from the building, to the main street sidewalk area. It is vitally important to keep clear of the doorways and to leave clear access to the building for firemen, police or other emergency personnel. In the event of extreme weather, proceed to the Athabasca University.
  • The last person in a room will check to see that everyone has left the room and that the doors have been closed. Do not lock doors and do not switch off the lights.
  • When it can be determined that the building is safe to be re-entered, an announcement will indicate the “all clear” (3 short bells) for all people to return to their rooms.

Lock Down Procedures

  • A lock down may be activated as a result of: a bomb threat, threatening persons, emergency situations
  • All guests who may safely leave the Multiplex will do so in an orderly fashion and proceed to the Athabasca University.
  • Persons who are unable to leave the building will attempt to find a safe place (ie: washroom, storage room, classroom) in which they may remain silent and out of sight.
  • Lights should be turned off in the designated area and blinds should be closed.
  • Individuals within the school should refrain from using the classroom phone and their personal cell phones.
  • When it can be determined that the building is safe, an announcement will indicate the “all clear” (said three times by a designated individual).
  • If the fire alarm is triggered during a lock down, do not leave your safe place.
