Facilities, Infrastructure and Risk Management (FIRM)

Facilities Management & Campus Services

 

TO:  Shutdown Group, All Buildings, All Facility Coordinators

FROM:  Service Response Center

DATE:  June 8, 2021

SUBJECT: EHS Building Evacuation Drills – 2021 Summer Schedule


In an effort to demonstrate fire safety awareness and preparedness in compliance with the fire code, Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) has prepared a fire evacuation drill summer schedule. The attached schedule identifies the proposed day and time of the drill as well as the academic and administrative buildings in which the drills will be conducted.

During the fire evacuation drills, you will hear a siren/horn and/or voice command announcement to evacuate. We ask for your full cooperation during the drills. The expected duration of each drill will be approximately 15-20 minutes. We recognize the drills may interrupt your schedule and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Fire evacuation drills will be conducted on scheduled dates between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m.

As CMU enters the next phase of returning to in-person campus operations, anyone that is occupying a campus facility during a scheduled fire drill is expected to participate while continuing to adhere to the university’s COVID-19 Minimum Requirements.

Please adhere to the following directions when the fire alarm sounds to safely evacuate the building:

·       Never ignore a fire alarm.

·       If a fire alarm sounds, evacuate immediately in a safe and orderly manner – do not run.

·       If needed, shut-off any heat sources or equipment, quickly gather personal belongings (i.e. keys, pursue, bag) and proceed to the nearest exit.

·       It is recommended to have at least two ways out. Proceed to the nearest exit. Remember to use the stairs.

·       When exiting, move at least 150 ft. away or further, to a safe location from the building.

·       Do not re-enter the building until given the all clear to return inside by EHS personnel.

·       For any ADA assistance during a fire drill and inability to self-evacuate, shelter-in-place or go to an enclosed stairwell, if safe to do so. Tell someone of your location and ask them to notify the EHS personnel conducting the drill. If you are not sure if the fire alarm is a drill – Call University Police at 412-268-2323 and tell them of your location and situation.

·       Remember to thoroughly wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after the drill.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have questions regarding proper procedures for your area, please contact EHS or send an email to: safety@andrew.cmu.edu.
