WHAT DO I DO IN CASE OF A FIRE?

  1. Upon discovering a fire, close the door to the room where the fire is located and immediately sound the building fire alarm.
  2. Call Public Safety at ext. 4461. Give your name, department and location of fire.
  3. If the fire is small, you may wish to fight it with a fire extinguisher. Always locate the fire extinguisher in your area and note its location.
  4. If the fire is large, very smoky, or spreading rapidly, evacuate the building immediately. Inform others in the building who may not have responded to the alarm to evacuate immediately. If the alarm stops, continue to evacuate.
  5. Take purses, lock file cabinets, and office doors upon leaving. Walk, do not run to the nearest exit. If you are disabled, yell for help to go down the stairs.
  6. When the fire alarm sounds, do not use an elevator.
  7. Evacuate to a distance of at least 500 feet from the building. 8. Notify either Public Safety or Firefighters on the scene if you suspect someone may be trapped.

EVACUATION for Campus Housing

All employees and students are responsible for responding to either an alarm system or verbal command to exit the building immediately and proceed to the Emergency Assembly Point (EAP). At the EAP, the Assembly Marshal for that building will be in charge.

The RA of each residence hall serves as the Assembly Marshall for that particular location. If not present when a building evacuation occurs, the on-call Supervisor performs in that capacity. If both are present, they may work together.
