Fire or Explosion

Fire response procedures are designed to protect the health and safety of facility/building, faculty, staff, students and the public. These procedures are essential in emergency response operations to ensure a timely and suitable response to emergencies and to clearly define lines of authority and communication. All facility occupants share responsibility for the coordinated response and evacuation to fire. All fire alarms are real until proven otherwise.

Fire Procedures and Evacuation procedures have been developed for all University buildings. All personnel should be aware of what immediate actions they should take and how they should evacuate from the specific building and where they should assemble (.pdf).

Each building on campus has a Fire Safety Plan (.pdf).
