FIRE SAFETY EXPECTATIONS Before a fire occurs, you should prepare by knowing the location and route of your escape via the closest exit. No items or persons should block or obstruct doorways or hallways. Fire exit paths should be clear at all times. If a fire occurs, please follow the fire safety procedures outlined below: • Keep your head low and move quickly to the nearest exit. Crawl, if you can, so you do not breathe smoke. • Touch the door before opening it. Before touching the door handle, cover your hand for protection. Intense heat, deadly smoke, or gas may be on the other side. If the door is not hot, cautiously open it a few inches to check for heat, smoke, or flames on the other side. Keep your head out of the way while first opening the door and be ready to slam it shut if any heat or smoke rushes in. • Do not waste time getting dressed, looking for keys, or gathering valuables. Leave the building immediately and stay out. • Call the fire department (911) from a safe telephone and report the location of the fire. Stay on the telephone until instructed to hang up. • Alert other occupants of the building and the residence hall staff.
