Ryerson University Community Responsibility
A Shared Approach to Ensuring the Health, Safety and Security of Faculty, Staff, Students, Visitors and Guests in the Event of an Emergency on Campus
The University Emergency Awareness, Preparedness, & Response procedures, “Yellow Book” is your guide to potential emergencies on Campus.
Backed by the actions of the University Emergency Management team and comprehensive plans, detailed measures and communication strategies, the responsibilities of each community member are outlined in Emergency Awareness, Preparedness and Response Procedures.
You are responsible for being familiar with this Guide, following the emergency response procedures, providing assistance to persons with disabilities as indicated and advising of any observed hazards which could impact safe evacuation.
By each member of our community taking a few moments to read the procedures outlined in this guide, we can collectively be assured that we are prepared to deal with emergencies.
We welcome your comments and suggestions for continuous improvement of emergency response on campus. The effectiveness of these procedures is reviewed annually. In addition, a review follows actual emergencies to ensure best practices are linked to experience.
Thank you for your support.
