Fire Safety

Fire is one of the most likely emergencies to occur in a building. Everyone should be familiar with fire response procedures
and know the sound of the fire alarm. In the event the fire alarm activates:

  • Leave the building and close doors on the way out.
  • Do not use the elevator.
  • Meet at a pre-determined location for a head count.
  • Do not re-enter the building until the fire department or police makes the all-clear announcement.

could be endangered. PASS is a simple acronym for use of an extinguisher:

Fire Safety Log

The US Department of Education requires each institution of higher education to keep a log of fires that occur in residential
occupancies, such as dorms and fraternities. False alarms are not included in the tally.
