Evacuation Procedures

Evacuation Procedures for Non-Residence Halls

In the event of fire or other emergencies but particularly fires, in non-residential buildings, at the sound of a fire alarm, occupants of the building need to evacuate the building quickly and safely and once outside, go to a pre-designated location so it can be determined that everyone is out of the building, and await further instructions from Public Safety. You must keep a safe distance from the building for personal safety and so as not to impede the work of the firefighters.
