If you hear an alarm sound:

- If smoke is present, keep low to the floor.
- DO NOT use elevators!
- DO NOT REENTER the building until told to do so by The Department of Public Safety or Fire Department personnel.
If flames are observed:

- Immediately evacuate the building.
- Go to the nearest phone and call The Department of Public Safety, 5000.
If you smell smoke or have any other indication of fire:
- Immediately call The Department of Public Safety, 5000.
- Describe what you have observed. Give your name and location.
- Alert other building occupants to prepare for possible evacuation.
Report all fires, no matter how small, to the Department of Public Safety, 5000.
- Give you name and describe the location of the fire. Some building fire alarms ring only in the building, and are not monitored by an alarm company.
- Know the location of fire alarms and fire extinguishers in your area and know how to use them. Manual Fire Systems: Manual alarms are activated by pulling a red fire alarm “pull station.” There is a pull station located near all major exits in a building with an alarm system.
Not all Centenary buildings have an alarm system.
Automated Fire Systems: Automated alarms are activated when a sensor detects heat or smoke. A building with an automated fire system will of ten have pull stations as well. If you see a fire and the alarm has not activated, pull the nearest station as you leave the building.
No Fire Systems: Some campus buildings have no fire alarm systems. If you see or smell something burning, exit the building immediately and call 911 or 5000.
