Multi-site evacuations

the company I work for have multiple units in close proximity. Mix of office units and warehouse units. Alarming systems do not link all units. 

Wondering what your view is on having either a “all out” policy, or “affected unit only”policy. If you have Marshall’s sweeping the affected unit, and then notifying the others, should you have to evacuate every other building? 

I appreciate it certain buildings hold specific risks that could impact units in close proximity then they need to be evacuated. That’s not really the case in this instance.

Yes, it's rare outside of high risk environments to need to evacuate whole sites. It's horribly expensive and disruptive in lost time and leads to more people than necessary needing control, moving out of the way of the fire service and possibly shelter and sustenance if the weather is extreme and the incident protracted.
