 ABOUT THIS GUIDE
MEDICAL EMERGENCY
ASSISTANCE - PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
York University is committed to ensuring that community members can evacuate safely in the event of an emergency.  Please let your manager, residence life coordinator or instructor know if you may need assistance of any kind to evacuate the building in an emergency.

An evacuation plan can be developed that may help you remain safe. For example, arrangements may be made for a colleague to volunteer as your ‘buddy’ in the event of an evacuation. In an emergency situation, your buddy may escort you to a previously designated safe area on your floor.  City of Toronto firefighters will then evacuate persons at risk that are waiting in these designated areas.

If you have not made prior arrangements or are in a different building, notify the Emergency Response Wardens, faculty or manager on that floor that you are visiting and advise them of your needs.

If you are in a life threatening situation – always call 911 first. Call York University Security Services afterwards, if possible at extension 33333, or by calling 416-736-5333 or by using the Safety Phone if available.
