Areas of Refuge

An area of refuge is a location in a building designed to hold occupants during a fire or other emergency when evacuation may not be safe or possible. Occupants can wait there until rescued or relieved by firefighters. At UTC, areas of refuge may be a designated room, stairwell or safe location near an exit.  Emergency call boxes are located in these areas and can be activated to let Campus Police know that someone needs assistance to evacuate a building.
