A fire alarm system is located throughout the buildings that work together to detect and alert guests through visual and audio appliances when smoke/fire is present. These alarms may be activated from smoke detectors and heat detectors. These detectors are extremely sensitive to even being set up for a large release of steam from a bathroom. They may also be activated via manual fire alarm activation devices such as manual call points or pull stations.
When a fire alarm in a building is sounded (by smoke, another person, fire drill or otherwise), always take the fire alarm seriously and assume there is a fire. All persons are required to vacate the building or area. Proceed to nearest exit (quickly and orderly).
Please be sure to move away from the building and out of the path of the emergency vehicles and personnel. If a guest has information regarding a fire, they are encouraged to tell the nearest University Police Officer or call University Police at 717-871-4636.
