North Campus Evacuation Drills - How did you do?

Evacuation Drill - How did you do?
When you heard the fire alarm, did you:
- close your windows and doors?
- take you coat, keys, personal effects (medicine, wallets, etc.)?
- move quickly to an exit?
- warn others that they should leave?
Once outside did you:
- move away from the entrance quickly?
- stay back from the building at least 100 feet?
- check that everybody from your area made it out?
- report any problems to officials outside?
- remain outside until authorized by an official to return?
Things to remember:
- never ignore a fire alarm.
- respond quickly.
- do not use the elevator.
- keep exits clear.
- remain outside until authorized by an official to return. (when fire alarm stops, it does not mean that it is safe to go back in.)
