Building Egress


In the event of an emergency evacuation, all doors, stairways, corridors, and other means of egress must be kept free of any kind of obstruction. In addition, these areas may not be used for equipment and storage.

Only the Physical Plant Lock Shop can determine what type of locking device is acceptable on an exit. Dead-bolts are not permissible at exits. If there are any questions or concerns about locking devices, contact Service Operations at 656-2560, or place an order online at: http://www.uvm.edu/~uvmppd/Online_Forms/work_order.html.

Storage Only designated areas can be used for storage.

Do not use machine, electrical, or transformer rooms for storage. These areas are prime places for fires and explosions.
