Fire Safety Information

Emergency Actions

In Case of Fire:

DO NOT USE ELEVATORS!

Evacuate immediately when you hear the fire alarm or an RSCC official tells you to evacuate. Always walk calmly and quickly to the nearest marked exit and your pre-designated assembly point at least 300 feet away from the building. Alert others to do the same.

If you are on a floor without ground level access and cannot use the stairs, stay near the stairwell if possible and await rescue.

In Case of Smoke/Possible Fire:

Learn in Advance

  1. Know the location of your pre-designated emergency assembly point (at least 300 feet away from the building). The assembly points are designated on the evacuation plan posted in each building.
  2. When the fire alarm is sounded, College policy requires that all persons evacuate any facility via the nearest available exit to your pre-designated emergency assembly point.
  3. Remove personal items when you evacuate, such as purses and book bags.
  4. Close all doors to classrooms and offices. Leave them unlocked for emergency personnel unless otherwise instructed.
  5. Know the location of alarm pull-stations, fire extinguishers, fire exits, and assembly points in your area.
  6. If you are on a floor without ground level access and cannot use the stairs, stay near the stairwell if possible and await rescue.
  7. Do not re-enter the buildings until authorized to do so by emergency personnel.
