Fire alarm pull-stations are connected to a building fire protection system that sends a signal to the University Police. Activating a fire pull-station will trigger the evacuation of the building and will send a signal to the University Police Communications Center, eliciting a police and fire department response.
If you discover smoke or a fire in a building:
Do not panic
Sound the alarm immediately by pulling any red FIRE pull-station (located near all exits)
Evacuate to the outside, warning others on the way out
OPTION: if the fire is in a room or small area, confine it by closing the room doors prior to leaving the building
Seek out the first arriving emergency personnel (police, fire, medical) and tell them the specific location of the fire
Once you are out of the building, stay out!
