Fire Evacuation Maps
In case of a fire requiring evacuation, please pull the nearest fire alarm and exit the building in a calm and orderly fashion. As soon as you are safe, call 911. Below is an example of what the fire evacuation maps look like. It is important for everyone to familarize themselves with the exits in buildings they occupy. Always know two ways out of the building, in case one exit is blocked by smoke and fire.
How to read fire evacuation maps
To begin look in the lower right hand corner. There you will see the name of the building you are in and what floor you are on. You will also find a directional arrow, and a "You Are Here" marking on the map, use this this information to orientate yourself.
From the "You Are Here" marking there will be arrows leading to all the exits available to you. Based on your situation, exit using the safest and quickest exit to you. This may not always be the closest exit to you.
Never use an elevator in the event of a fire, also try to avoid the tunnels if at all possible unless it is your only option.
On the map all fire extinguishers and pull stations in the building are labeled. If a fire is severe enough to warrant evacuation, pull one of the pull stations on your way out to warn others in the building. Only consider using a fire extinguisher if you are trained to do so, and if you can safely do so without risk to yourself or other persons.
