If you smell smoke or other unusual odors suggesting a possible fire, immediately call the Campus Police at 911.
If you discover an actual fire situation, you should:
- Alert other building occupants by immediately sounding the building fire alarm. To do this pull a wall-mounted fire alarm pull station, located near all exit ways.
- Contact Campus Police by dialing 911 and give them the location of the fire.
- Evacuate the building. Do not use the elevators. Most stairways are protected from smoke and are the safest way out of the building.
If needed, fire extinguishers are located in all public corridors approximately every 75 feet and located underneath all sinks inside resident housing.
Never assume a fire alarm is false. If you hear a fire alarm sounding, exit the building immediately.
Do not re-enter the building until told it is safe to do so by either the police or the fire department.
