Earthquake Evacuation

In the unlikely event of an earthquake take immediate cover in a doorway or under a table until the quake has subsided. Immediately after, follow the Tsunami Evacuation plan below.

Fire Safety & Emergency Procedures

If you see a fire or smell smoke, dial “0” and inform the Front Desk of the following: your name and room number, and the location of the smoke and/or fire.

Evacuate the building immediately. Upon evacuation, meet the staff and other guests at the parking lot.

» Fire Extinguishers: There are fire extinguishers on each floor of each building of the Inn.

» Smoke Alarms: There are smoke alarms in each guest room. All alarms are electric with battery backup.

Personal Privacy & Security

Doors: Every guest room entry door is equipped with a view hole or window, a dead bolt lock, and a “Do Not Disturb” sign. Use the view hole or window to identify visitors. If you are unsure of the person at your door, don’t open it; call the Front Desk. Use the dead bolt lock and “Do Not Disturb” sign when you don’t want anyone coming into your room.

Lost & Found

If you think you have misplaced something somewhere at our Inn or in your room, just check with the Front Desk. The housekeepers and Front Desk staff keep lost items in a safe place until they are reclaimed. Lost items are held up to 30 days after departure.

Tsunami (Tidal Wave) Evacuation

Please review map below. During a tidal wave threat, the Tsunami Alert Siren will be activated for a period of 90 seconds, and will be followed by a loudspeaker announcement that prompts you to evacuate to higher ground. Stay Calm. Stay away from all bridges. Don’t pack things – leave them. Your safety is more important. Don’t drive – unless you cannot walk. It is faster to go on foot because cars cause traffic jams. Never go to the beach to watch for a Tsunami. Tsunamis are very rare in Cannon Beach, but just in case, take the following steps to ensure your safety.

• Quickly exit the Inn at Cannon Beach and proceed to the north parking lot.
• Head east on Surfcrest (towards the mountains).
• Proceed to higher ground by following the Tsunami Evacuation Route sign on trail across highway.
• At the top of the hill is the Safe Zone of 60 feet or more above sea level. Wait for the “All Clear” announcement from the city intercom system before returning to low land.
