Fire Safety Tips

  •       Know the location of fire alarms and practice using your fire exit
  •       DO NOT tamper with fire alarms or extinguishers. (IT’S A CRIME)
  •       Keep flammable materials away from all heat sources

  •       DO NOT smoke in bed
  •       DO NOT store any highly combustible material in you room
  •       Halogen lamps are prohibited

What To Do In The Event Of A Fire

  • FEEL THE DOOR FOR HEAT: If the metal knobs or door are hot:
    • DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR: Go to a window and call for help
    • DO NOT JUMP: our doors and walls are fire rated to survive a lone time
    • KEEP LOW TO THE GROUND: There is more fresh air
  • If you CAN exit your room: Close the door behind you, pull a fire alarm if you pass one and go to the predetermined roll call location.
  • DO NOT USE ELEVATORS to exit a building.
