Uptown Evacuation Plan

​Uptown Evacuation Plan

Planning for an evacuation is a serious matter. If you or a loved one works, lives, or visits uptown for events it is important to know how to evacuate during an emergency. It is also important to speak with you uptown employer, daycare provider, or school about their evacuation plans so that you can develop your own plans in case of an emergency evacuation.

Follow assigned routes of travel based on ward quadrants (first, second, third, fourth). All other routes are for emergency vehicles only. Do not use your regular route of travel, unless it is suggested on the map. Normal traffic patterns and routes may be altered depending on the type of emergency.

Our evacuation plan is based on an event occurring in the very core of uptown or the square (Trade and Tryon). Considering that the emergency could take place anywhere, the pre-designated routes should be used for guidance followed as closely as possible.
