Emergency Procedures

Fire Evacuation

  • Before opening a door, feel the upper portion of the door or the doorknob. If the upper door or doorknob is not hot, brace yourself against the door and open it slightly.
  • If you encounter heat or heavy smoke in the corridor, close the door and stay in the room.
  • Keep the door closed. Seal the cracks around the door with clothing, tape or other material, soaking them in water when possible.
  • Hang an object out the window, such as a shirt, jacket, towel, or anything that will attract attention.
  • If you can leave the room, close all doors behind you as you move to the closest exit or stairway. DO NOT lock doors.
  • If the nearest exit is blocked, go to an alternate exit. If all exits are blocked, go to the room furthest from the fire, close the door and follow procedures above.
  • After leaving the building, DO NOT RE­ ENTER, until cleared by the Department of Public Safety or Fire Department personnel.
  • Report to your designated assembly point. Stay there until an accurate head count has been taken.
