Evacuation, although it is considered an important element of computer security, is usually neglected and shunted to the side by most sophisticated security planners. An evacuation plan is proposed: 1) An orderly and efficient transition from normal to emergency operations; 2) Delegation of emergency authority; 3) Assignment of emergency responsibility; 4) Coordination between responsible individuals to assure an efficient sequency of execution; 5) Safety precautions to be taken during the evacuation; 6) How and where to obtain assistance; and 7) Location of special equipment such as portable communication systems, fire extinquishers, fire hoses, flashlights. Recall procedures are also outlined.
