Emergency Preparedness for Individuals with Disabilities

Personal planning is the most important step in securing your safety while at FGCU.  Whether it’s making sure you receive notification of an emergency, or evacuating during an emergency, FGCU provides you with the tools for creating your emergency plan. 

Each building on campus is equipped with emergency signals that are both auditory and visual.  Building maps are posted at elevators, highlighting the stairwells and Areas of Rescue Assistance.  Additionally, each syllabus you receive will have information on emergency notification.  Instructors can assist you in locating emergency exits in relation to your classroom.  

 Students who will require assistance during an emergency situation should meet with their case manager to discuss the development of an emergency plan. FGCU employees are encouraged to meet with their supervisor to request and clarify their need for assistance.

 You are encouraged to visit the Environmental Health and Safety and University Police Department websites, below, for more specific information on emergency notification and evacuation.
