Judicial Branch Emergency Management Services
Emergency management is the discipline of dealing with and avoiding risks, particularly those that have catastrophic consequences for our Judicial Branch facilities. It is the dynamic process of preparing for, mitigating, responding to and recovering from an emergency. An emergency is any unplanned event that can cause significant injuries to the public; or that can disrupt court operations, cause physical or environmental damage.
An important part of the emergency procedures involve evacuation procedures for our courts. If an alarm should sound, all visitors should evacuate the facility in a calm and orderly manner and follow the directions of Judicial Branch Security Officers who will direct you to a safe staging area away from the facility. The Judicial Branch Security Officers will notify you when it is safe to return to the facility. You will need to go through the screening process when re-entering the facility.
The Judicial Branch does allow service dogs that meet the state requirements and have proper identification.
Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are located at each security screening post and Judicial Branch Security Officers are properly trained in their use in the event of a medical emergency.
