Fire Safety - Faculty Responsibilities

Faculty must become familiar with fire alarm locations and fire exits.

During fire drills and actual emergency evacuations classes that are in progress will evacuate.

Faculty members who are teaching classes will assist in the evacuation of students and will:

  • Direct students to the nearest fire exit away from the emergency.

  • Instruct students to leave promptly and quietly.

  • Insure that disabled students are given necessary assistance in evacuating the classroom and if necessary, moved to the nearest smoke free stairway.

  • Insure that all students have left the classroom before leaving themselves.

  • Close, but not lock, the classroom door when leaving.

  • Prohibit the use of elevators.

  • Follow the instructions of Fire Wardens, Security and Public Safety officers.
