WHEN THE FIRE ALARM SOUNDS, GET OUT OF THE BUILDING QUICKLY AND STAY OUT!
  • Never remove batteries or otherwise disable the smoke alarm
  • Learn your building’s evacuation plan and practice all drills as if they were the real thing
  • If you live off campus, have a fire escape plan with two ways out of every room
  • Stay in the kitchen when cooking
  • Cook only when you are alert, not sleepy or drowsy from medicine or alcohol
  • Keep your cooking area clean and uncluttered
  • Keep anything that can catch fire away from your stovetop
  • Keep a lid nearby when you’re cooking to smother small grease fires
  • Turn off the heat and keep the oven door closed if a fire occurs
