 Evacuation

Emergency evacuation plans are located in strategic locations on each floor of all campus buildings. Members of the campus community should become familiar with these plans as well as the location of fire alarm stations, emergency exits, and fire extinguishers in their area. In the even that a building needs to be evacuated for any reason, a fire alarm will be activated.

If you discover fire, see smoke or smell gas:
  1. Sound alarm to warn occupants; (Fire alarm pull station)
  2. Evacuate IMMEDIATELY using the nearest safe exit and proceed outside and clear the building to a minimum distance of 100 meters (300 feet) to the nearest assembly point. DO NOT USE ELEVATORS FOR EVACUATION PURPOSES;
  3. If trained to do so, fight fire using a fire extinguisher only if small and not between you and an exit; and
  4. Call Campus Enforcement & Patrol (St. John’s 864-4100, Grenfell 637-2888).
If the fire alarm sounds:
  1. Stop all work and remain calm;
  2. Evacuate IMMEDIATELY using the nearest safe exit and proceed outside and clear the building to a minimum distance of 100 meters (300 feet) to the nearest assembly point. DO NOT USE ELEVATORS FOR EVACUATION PURPOSES;
  3. Do not try to remove any vehicle from the parking lot/garage;
  4. Obey all instructions of the Emergency Wardens and CEP;
  5. Comply with Fire department orders; and
  6. Return to the building only when the CEP has authorized you to do so.
