Exercises and Drills on CampusFeb 2, 2011 - 3:36:47 PM
Exercises and drills are an extremely important part of any campus (and building) emergency management program. Building evacuation and severe weather sheltering (tornado) drills are encouraged but not mandatory on the UGA campus. If your building wishes to have a drill, the Building Safety and Security Representative (BSSR) for your building may coordinate the drill and document it using the appropriate evaluation forms. To find out the BSSR for your building, go to: https://emer.uosp.uga.edu/osepforms/building_list.html
All University buildings and departments are encouraged to participate in the annual Statewide Severe Weather Sheltering Day (tornado drill) which occurs in February. The UGA Office of Security and Emergency Preparedness (OSEP) can help in planning, implementation and evaluation of any drills that the BSSR wishes to undertake for their building. Certain types of drills (lock-down, shelter in place, unannounced drills other than fire drills, etc.) require advanced planning and technical assistance, and should only be developed with assistance and consultation from OSEP personnel.
Note: Fire drill evaluations should be coordinated through the UGA Fire Safety Office at (706) 369-5706.
