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.
people ask, "WHY DO WE CONDUCT FIRE DRILLS?" The answer is as follows:
Evacuation Drills are an intricate part of emergency preparedness planning.
allows occupants to familiarize themselves with evacuation procedures,
location of fire exits, and the sound of the fire alarm.
drills allow us to identify technical problems with the Fire Alarm Equipment.
allow us to gauge whether additional equipment is needed in certain
areas of the building.
allow us to check to see if fire protection equipment, such as fire
doors, are being used properly.
allow us to see whether or not persons evacuate the building as legally
allow us to identify critical processes in the building, such as delicate
experiments, and hazardous conditions.
allow us to gauge how long it takes to evacuate each building and what
exits are generally used, in case of a fire.
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.
THE EVACUATION ALARM SOUNDS - YOU MUST LEAVE THE BUILDING !!!!!!
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.
