How to report a fire:

  1. Call 911. Report the exact location of the fire and, if known, what is burning. Sound the building alarm by pulling an alarm station.
  2. Never allow the fire to come between you and an exit.
  3. Remove all persons from the danger area. Close doors behind you to confine the fire.

Response to audible fire alarms:

  1. Evacuate the building. Shut all doors behind you. Closed doors can slow the spread of fire, smoke and water.
  2. Do not use the elevators.
  3. If requested, assist persons with disabilities who appear to need direction or assistance.
  4. Do not delay evacuation – if possible take purses and backpacks.
  5. Once outside, remain approximately 300 feet from the exits to help facilitate clear access to the building for emergency response personnel.
  6. Return to the building only when instructed to do so by emergency response personnel.
