In Dead Rising 2: Case West, nine survivors, along with three other important characters and a psychopath, can be found in the Phenotrans Facility. After Frank West's source causes an outbreak in the facility, in order to have Frank and Chuck get around without much clearance problems, the scientists have found themselves in trouble and under attack from the zombies.
Unlike any other Dead Rising game, the survivors do not need to be escorted to a Security Room or Safe House. Instead, they just need to be helped out, whether it is fetching them a weapon, saving them from zombies, or even finding human organs. Afterwards, since they know the facility pretty well, they will evacuate on their own, rendering the Safe status in Chuck's Notebook.
