When a Fire Alarm Sounds:

  • Leave the building immediately taking keys and clothing appropriate to the weather. It may be some time before you may re-enter the building.
  • Only Public Safety or Residence Life staff can give permission to reenter a building after a fire alarm. This can only be done after they receive the all clear from the fire department. 
  • All rooms are checked to make sure everyone has exited the building. Residents and their guest(s) who fail to exit the building are subject to a fine. Preventing someone from leaving a building during an emergency, or encouraging another person to ignore alarms, is not permitted and could result in disciplinary action.
  • Fire drill evacuation plans and emergency procedures are posted near or on the back of all room doors in each residence hall; please become familiar with them
