In case of a fire, the designated Floor Wardens on your floor will help direct employees to the exit stairwells to exit out to the street or a re-entry floor depending on where you are located in the building. Please become familiar with the Building Evacuation Plan. Help to move non-ambulatory persons into exit stairwells. Ensure stairwell doors are closed, but NOT locked. When evacuating via stairwells, keep to the exterior wall. DO NOT use elevators. Wait for an all clear over the Emergency Paging System or Building Management. 
If you should discover a fire of any size or smell smoke:
  • Close all surrounding doors to isolate the fire.
  • Immediately call 911. Give them your exact location and explain the situation. If the building phone lines are down, call 911 from a cellular phone.
  • If possible, use fire extinguishers to extinguish small controllable fires. Fire extinguishers are located throughout the building.
  • Do not open hot doors. Before opening any interior door, touch it near the top to see if it is hot. A fire on the other side could blast through if the door is opened.
  • Advise the Building Management office of the location and severity of the fire so that management can communicate with the Fire Department upon arrival.

To prevent fires, consider these precautions:
  • Avoid electrical overloading and using multiple plugs.
  • Do not use undersized or lightweight extension cords.
  • Do not use space heaters.
  • Report the failure of any electrical outlets or lights to the Building Management Office.
  • Do not store flammable liquids in Tenant spaces.
  • Do not store materials in phone or utility closets.
  • Know the location and type of fire extinguishers in your premises and learn how to use them.
