Please take time to study the evacuation floor plan maps posted throughout your campus and available below. Become familiar with the exits available at your campus. As always, DO NOT use an elevator in event of an evacuation, ALWAYS use the stairs.
When a fire alarm sounds in the College, directions will be given by an intermittent voice over. The alarm may start out with a slower, intermittent ring with instructions to prepare to evacuate, OR a fast ring instructing you to evacuate immediately. Always assume the alarm is real and evacuate as instructed.
The fire alarm operates in two stages.
- A slow intermittent ring and voiceover message signaling you to listen to further instructions and prepare for possible evacuation of the building.
- A fast ring indicates a fire in the building, and everyone must leave the building via the nearest exit. Intermittent voice-over instructions will be given.
- The elevators must not be used.
