EMERGENCY EVACUATION DRILLS

The Office of Public Safety is committed to providing a safe environment on Campus for all faculty, staff and students and as per New York State Law must conduct EMERGENCY EVACUATION DRILLS - (Fire Drills). During the last semester some students as well as some faculty were observed disregarding our Security Officers request to leave buildings when the fire alarm had sounded.

Many people ask, "WHY DO WE CONDUCT FIRE DRILLS?" The answer is as follows:

  • Emergency Evacuation Drills are an intricate part of emergency preparedness planning.
  • It allows occupants to familiarize themselves with evacuation procedures, location of fire exits, and the sound of the fire alarm.
  • The drills allow us to identify technical problems with the Fire Alarm Equipment.
  • They allow us to gauge whether additional equipment is needed in certain areas of the building.
  • They allow us to check to see if fire protection equipment, such as fire doors, are being used properly.
  • They allow us to see whether or not persons evacuate the building as legally required.
  • They allow us to identify critical processes in the building, such as delicate experiments, and hazardous conditions.
  • They allow us to gauge how long it takes to evacuate each building and what exits are generally used, in case of a fire.

The Emergency Evacuation Drills are timed and monitored for effectiveness. We understand that it is an inconvenience for some occupants, BUT LIFE SAFETY IS A CRITICAL ISSUE. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions about the Emergency Evacuation Drills or fire safety, please contact the Department of Public Safety at Ext. #5511.

WHEN THE EVACUATION ALARM SOUNDS - YOU MUST LEAVE THE BUILDING !!!!!!

It is a violation of New York State Law to fail to leave a building when the fire alarm is sounding. Always assume it is a real emergency and leave the building. It is unlawful for any person to prevent, or order another person from leaving the building when the alarm is sounding.

FACULTY ARE NOT PERMITTED TO KEEP CLASS IN SESSION DURING SUCH EMERGENCY CONDITIONS.
