Fire Drills are conducted annually at each campus. The purpose of fire drills is to prepare building occupants for an organized evacuation in case of fire or other emergency. Fire drills will involve complete evacuation of the building(s) and all employees and students will be required to participate.

Fire Wardens (wearing yellow vests) are employee volunteers who assist Facilities and Security personnel with fire and building evacuations. Floor wardens are available Monday to Friday during regular working hours. On evenings and weekends building evacuation is coordinated by Facilities and Security personnel.
