  13. 13. Stop what you are doing! Shut down any experiments and turn off gas and electricity. Won’t worry about work on the computer, hit save and leave.

  14. 14. Stay calm. Don’t Panic Depending on the situation, it may not be easy to keep calm. If you practice, in your mind, what you would do if the fire alarm were to sound, you will be more able to stay calm.
  15. 15. Take only your personal belongings
  16. 16. Proceed to the nearest EXIT
  17. 17. Close, but don’t lock the door as you leave. Closing the door will help keep a fire from spreading as quickly as it would with the door open. Don’t lock the door, because you or someone else may need to take refuge in that room.
  18. 18. If Unable to Leave: Have one person call the EPCC Police Department at 831-2200. (multiple calls at the same time will tie up the PD phone) Tell the dispatcher your location and stay on the line for further instructions. Dispatch is manned 24/7
