Emergency Response Warden Program
Dec 12, 2012, 1pm-4pm
Audience: Open to all employees and students living in residence
The Emergency Response Warden program is a vital piece to the safety of both York University campuses. Emergency Response Wardens (ERW) are volunteers from all parts of the York University community (faculty, staff and students).
The main function of the ERW is to assist in the safe and prompt evacuation of faculty, staff, visitors and/or students from a designated area during an emergency or drill. ERWs are recognizable by their orange vests and hats. Building Emergency Captains wear yellow vests and hats and provide direction to ERWs.
Volunteers attend a 3 hour training session in which they are given an overview of emergency management in Ontario and how it pertains to us here at York University. Existing staff currently involved in the program should ensure they complete refresher training annually.
Faculty and staff interested in volunteering to be Emergency Response Wardens or requiring refresher training should contact their departmental Emergency Preparedness Coordinator and obtain approval from their supervisor prior to submitting a training request form.
Training sessions for students in residence are normally held in mid-October. If you would like to volunteer to be a student Emergency Response Warden, please contact your Residence Life Coordinator or Don who will make the necessary arrangements for you. Please do not submit a training request form.
