Fire or Other Alarm
All alarms must be considered valid unless prior notification has been made announcing the testing of the alarm system. If you discover a fire, pull the fire alarm pull station as you exit the building. If you can do so safely, notify others as you leave the building. Close (but do not lock) all doors behind you as you exit the building. If there is access to a phone, call 911 or 314-977-3000 to notify DPSEP of the situation.
- Evacuate immediately
At the sound of any fire or other alarm in the School of Law, all occupants (faculty, staff, students and visitors) should immediately, but calmly, evacuate the building using the nearest exit. Individuals in an area without a ground floor exit should evacuate the building by using the stairs. The elevators should not be used.
- Individuals who cannot use the stairs
An individual who cannot use the stairs, and who is not in an area with a ground floor exit when the alarm sounds, should go to the North internal stairwell's landing area of the floor she is on. Rescue personnel have been alerted to check in these areas immediately upon their arrival.
- Report to designated gathering area to await further information
The School of Law designated evacuee gathering area is the park directly across the street from the School of Law on Tucker Blvd. All evacuees should wait in the gathering area for further information or direction. Only DPSEP can issue the order to return to the building.
