A fire/evacuation drill will be conducted at SCS sometime Friday, Dec. 7. These drills are mandated by state and local fire agencies, and are invaluable to the participants. If you have anyone who is disabled or physically challenged, contact RMS at ext. 5-4226 or Vanessa Hogan at ext. 5-0463 for assistance. The entire exercise should take less than 30 minutes, but it will give the Risk Management and Safety office an opportunity to test the evacuation effectiveness of these buildings. Additionally, it allows alarm and response technicians the opportunity to test the systems.
Please prepare for this event by learning the shortest exit route from your room to the outside of the building.
When the building alarm sounds and/or you are requested to leave by Public Safety Personnel, please do the following.
- SHUTDOWN or LOCK any computers, or other electrical devices ONLY if it is safe to do so.
- SECURE YOUR VALUABLES. Take your purse and wallet with you.
- CLOSE YOUR DOOR
- DO NOT USE THE ELEVATOR
- STAND CLEAR of the building and report to a designated area outside. Find your Building Evacuation Plan online.
- DO NOT REENTER THE BUILDING until you are told it is safe to do so.
Please remember, we are conducting this drill to protect you, and increase your level of safety and survival in a fire or emergency situation.
If your department has a crucial event or day when a drill would be disruptive please email Vanessa Hogan or call 5-0463 or via email to make accommodations.
