Causes for evacuation may be fire, hazardous chemical incidents, explosion, severe weather or other conditions. Evacuate the building immediately and go to the emergency assembly area (or at least 500 feet away).
UTC campus buildings are equipped with fire evacuation alarm systems that include smoke and heat alarms, sprinkler water-flow alarms and wall-mounted pull stations.
If you hear a fire/evacuation alarm, you should evacuate the building immediately. Go to the emergency assembly area (or at least 500 feet away) indicated on the emergency evacuation signage in each building.
Stay at the emergency assembly area until you receive an "all clear" from local responders.
Anyone discovering a fire, witnessing an explosion or being made aware of a hazardous chemical incident should immediately activate the building evacuation alarm by pulling a pull station located at the exit ways and then notifying the Campus Police by dialing 911.
