In the event of an emergency, it may become necessary to evacuate the office building.
All Floor Response Team personnel as well as general personnel should be familiar with the following evacuation procedures:
- In an emergency situation, wait until management or designated Floor Response Team personnel indicated that it is safe and appropriate to evacuate the building.
- If you are directed to evacuate, closely follow the instructions of all Floor Response Team personnel including Floor Wardens, Elevator Monitors, Searchers and Stairwell Monitors.
- Do not exit via the elevators.
- Exit via stairwells only after a Stairwell Monitor has deemed it safe to do so.

- Hines Management will assign a specific evacuation location to Tenants upon move-in. In the event of an evacuation during business hours, Tenants should designate a “Runner” to go to the Building Emergency Command Center located at 14th and California Streets to communicate directly with building staff.
Evacuating the Injured
- If you are alone with an injured person who is unable to leave the area unassisted, you may find that a “blanket drag” will provide you with the means to remove the person from the hazardous area. The drag can also be accomplished with a coat. If you are unable to carry the person, the “blanket drag” may be your only means of moving the person out of danger.
- To get the person onto the blanket, turn the person on his/her side and roll the blanket up, lengthwise, so that when you roll them over to the other side, you can open the blanket. Grasp the corners nearest the head of the injured and pull the person out of the area.
