In the event that the local authorities determine Mellon Independence Center must perform a full building evacuation, a remote area has been identified as a suitable assembly point for the buildings tenants.
This area is accessible utilizing any of the building main exits or stair tower exits by proceeding to 7th Street and continuing north toward Arch St. for approximately two blocks until arriving at the entrance to the park. Upon arrival check-in with your instructor or State System @ Center City personnel and await further instructions from building personnel or local authorities.
Upon arrival to the designated assembly area, the Disaster Recovery Plan may go into effect. At this point, a communications liaison will be established. The liaison will communicate updated information, as it becomes available, regarding incident status, return to work, etc. A member of the building security team or management team will be posted on the corner of 7th Street and Arch Street. EFC's will be able to obtain updated building status from this person.
As there will be voluminous amounts of people from all buildings arriving at the assembly area the following recommendations should be considered to ensure personnel accountability:
