Emergency Preparedness

Fire Alarm

Continuous ringing of the fire alarm indicates immediate evacuation of the building to a point at least 1,000 feet away from the building. Use designated emergency exit routes as posted in each area. Emergency evacuation drills will be held throughout the year to ensure that all persons understand and obey emergency procedures. During these drills students are to act as though the emergency were real and to behave in an orderly fashion.
