A general statement outlining Fire and Evacuation Procedure is attached to the wall in all lecture rooms. Evacuation posters are placed in all areas of the campus which provide information on your location, routes out of the building, assembly areas, and potential danger.
A siren will sound if there is an emergency on campus. There are two types of alarm:
