1. Activate the building fire alarm and/or alert people verbally. All people should exit by the nearest marked exit. Close all room doors as you exit. DO NOT LOCK DOORS IF SMOKE OR THE SMELL OF SMOKE IS PRESENT. If time permits, secure or take your personal purse, wallet, etc. with you. Do not enter any area marked by a hazardous material warning sign.
2 .Assist people with disabilities in exiting the building. Do not use the elevators.Smoke is the greatest danger in a fire. Stay near the floor where the air is less toxic.
3. Once outside, move to a clear area that is at least 500 feet away from the affected area. Keep streets, fire lanes, hydrant areas and walkways clear for emergency personnel. Faculty members should account for their students by conducting a head count.
