EH&S To Conduct Building Evacuation Drills This Summer

To practice fire safety awareness and preparedness, the Environmental Health & Safety Department will conduct evacuation drills in more than 35 academic and administrative buildings this summer.

During the 15-20 minute drill, please follow these directions when the alarm sounds:

  • Follow the directions of your floor marshal and proceed to the nearest exit.
  • Floor marshals should notify the nearest emergency official when everyone is accounted for, or if anyone is missing.
  • Remain with your group until the all-clear is given to return to the building.
  • Do not leave campus until the exercise has been completed.

Evacuation drills will be conducted between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. and will follow the schedule below.
