Fire or Explosion Emergency Procedures

  1. Alert people in the immediate area of the fire/explosion and evacuate the area.
  2. If you have been trained and it is safe to do so, you may attempt to extinguish a fire with a portable fire extinguisher. If you have not been trained to use a fire extinguisher, you must evacuate the area.
  3. Confine the fire by closing doors as you leave the area.
  4. If the automatic fire alarm has not been activated, activate the building fire alarm system by pulling the handle on a manual pull station.
  5. Evacuate the building following the procedures listed above. The Evacuation Coordinator must call 9-911 to verify the fire alarm/evacuation signal has been received.
