In the Event of an Emergency...

Get out of immediate danger and then call 911 from a secure location. 
Identify yourself, your location, situation, and what type of assistance you need (medical, fire, police).  DO NOT HANG UP UNTIL THE OPERATOR IS FINISHED.
Personal safety is our first priority; property protection is secondary. 
Please treat all alarms as if they are warning of an actual emergency situation.  Leaders are expected to be the role model in assisting others in responding to alarms.
Never re-enter a building after evacuation.
