Plan ahead in case of a fire: Make sure you know two ways out of your residence or work area to safety.
Rescue and Relocate anyone in immediate danger.
Alert others by activating the building fire alarm and calling x13 from a safe location. From a cell phone or other non-University phone, dial 275-3333.
Confine the emergency by closing doors. First close the door to the room in which the fire is located.
Evacuate immediately. Do not use the elevators, use the stairs instead. If there is smoke or heat, crawl close to the ground. If there is smoke in the hall, stay in your room, close the doors, dial x13 for help and stand close to the window.
