Fire Alarm Procedures (after hours)




IF YOU SUSPECT THERE IS AN ACTUAL FIRE


1. Use the nearest Pull-Down Alarm to notify the Fire Department.

2. If the fire is large or uncontrollable, leave the Library immediately via the closest (and safest) exit.

3. If you are not in immediate danger, quickly notify library patrons on the first and second floors that they need to evacuate the building via the closest exit.

4. From a safe area, call 9-1-1 and give emergency personnel all necessary information:

  • Location of fire (building, room, etc.)
  • Telephone number from which you are calling
  • Any other pertinent information
  • Stay near the telephone (if it’s in a safe area) in case additional information is needed

5. Notify Head of Access Services or the Assistant Director for Information Services as soon as possible.
