2020-2021 Faculty Handbook

Fire

In the event of a fire, the primary concern is to save lives; the protection of property is secondary. Students, faculty, and staff should follow the directives below to ensure their safety.

  1. If a fire is known to exist, contact the local fire department and Public Safety.

  2. Evacuate buildings when instructed or when it is unsafe to remain.

  3. Attempt to extinguish a minor fire, if equipment is available, and activate fire alarm in affected building and adjacent buildings.

  4. Public Safety will post guide personnel on entrance road(s) to direct emergency vehicles and divert other traffic.

  5. A command post and control center will be established in the event of a major fire.

  6. Do not panic, remain calm.
