Emergency Preparedness

Building Marshal / Site Administrator Information

Building Marshals

The Building Marshals are responsible for Emergency Management in their respective buildings. They are the individuals that interface with our Risk Management Office and the Environmental Heath and Safety Manager. 

These individuals become the eyes and ears of Risk Management and report safety and environmental problems and anything else that they perceive as safety or environmental problems in their building.

Building Marshals work with Campus Emergency Response Team (CERT) that also resides in their building.  The team members are all CERT trained and have emergency response equipment that has been assigned to them.  The Building Marshal has a larger, more complete equipment cache at their disposal as well.  Each Building Marshal has communications equipment assigned to them and to selected members of their team.

Building Marshals have responsibility for the orderly evacuation of their building should the need arise.  They assign team members to help them in this activity. 

This is a brief synopsis of a job description and may change for the specific needs of some of our buildings.
