Fire

  • Activate the nearest fire alarm and call 9-1-1 if possible. If there are no fire alarms, knock on doors and yell “fire” as you exit the building.
  • Evacuate the building.
  • Do not use elevators!
  • Feel closed doors with the back of your hand. Do not open if doors are hot.
  • Move well away from the building when evacuating and assemble at designated assembly areas.
  • Do not re-enter the building until authorized by emergency personnel.
