Evacuation Assistant

You can monitor the progress of evacuations by generating reports from the Active evacuations task in Security Desk.

Before you begin

You must have the Active evacuations privilege.

What you should know

  • At least one evacuation must be in progress for you to generate reports from the Active evacuations task.
  • Make sure to export reports for each evacuation before stopping the evacuation. This is the only way to save the information about past evacuations. After an evacuation ends, the data for that evacuation will no longer be available.
  • You must manually regenerate the report to get the latest information, or you can add the report to a dashboard and configure it to auto-refresh.

    For more information about creating dashboards, see Creating a dashboard.


  1. From the Security Desk home page, open the Active evacuations task.
  2. Select one or more of the following query filters for your report:

    Mustering areas

    Cardholder status
    The safety status of the cardholder:

    The individual has reached the mustering area.
    The individual was manually marked as Unsafe in the MusteringApp.
    Custom fields
    Click Add criterion, and select a custom field to add as a filter.
    NOTE: The Employer and Essential worker custom fields are added by the plugin by default. These custom fields are visible to all users in the Evacuation Assistant portal, regardless of the Security configuration of the custom fields.

    The cardholder's employer. This value comes from the Employer custom field that was added by the plugin.
    Essential worker
