View policy pdf: Evacuation Chair Program Guidelines Policy

The University of Georgia (UGA) is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all faculty, staff, students, parents, and visitors to the University. To that end, the objective of the UGA Evacuation Chair Program is to establish a campus-wide oversight and to develop appropriate guidelines to ensure consistency in purchasing, placement, training, maintenance, and departmental oversight of evacuation chairs on UGA properties.

Use of evacuation chairs will be in compliance with the responsibilities and procedures outlined in this program. This program applies to individuals trained on the proper use of evacuation chairs; departments with evacuation chairs currently in place; and departments that are considering, or in the process of purchasing, evacuation chairs.
