  • In a disaster, you may not leave the hospital until dismissed by your supervisor.


Fire plan

Fire Plan

  • If you see a fire, yell “Code Red” and the room number. Remove all subjects from the room of the fire and close the door.

  • Any employee hearing “Code Red” should pull the nearest fire pull station.

  • If the alarm does not sound, call Security at 6-3333.
