Superior Court Building Evacuation Information for Jurors
- In the event evacuation of the building is necessary, the fire alarm, public address system and bull horns will be used to inform Court occupants. Evacuation of physically challenged jurors will be given the highest priority in all emergencies. These jurors will be taken to the main elevator banks on their floors by designated monitors. They will remain in this area until further instructions are provided by an Emergency Coordinator or designee.
- Jurors waiting in the Jurors’ Lounge, the Jurors’ Business Center, and in the surrounding area will be directed by designated Stairway Monitors (orange vests) to assigned stairways leading out of the building. These jurors should report back to the Jurors’ Lounge when advised by Court Security Officers that it is safe to re-enter the building.
- Jurors in courtrooms will be directed as to what they should do by the courtroom staff. If they are not provided with specific reporting instructions at the time of the evacuation, they should return to their assigned courtroom when it is safe to re-enter the building.
