A Designated Waiting Area (DWA) is a waiting spot for those who need help evacuating a building. From a DWA, call 911 (510-642-3333 via cell) for assistance.

  • If you cannot reach your DWA, find a room with an exterior window, and call 911
  • If phones are down, signal from a window with a visible object, or use a whistle
