Employee Responsibilities

  • Evaluate and survey the facilities on campus where you work or spend significant time in order to determine the possible impact of a fire or other emergency.
  • Know the location of fire extinguishers, fire exits, and fire alarm pull boxes.
  • Faculty should educate students about emergency and evacuation procedures, and staff should do the same for those who report to them.
  • Designate a specific assembly area 300 to 500 feet from your building where a head count can be taken in the event of an evacuation and instruct students and appropriate others to report there.
