Fire and Evacuation Drills

The Office of Emergency Preparedness assists the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) in conducting academic and administrative building evacuation drills.  These drills are scheduled through the year with a goal of performing at least one evacuation drill per building annually.  Colleges, building coordinators and floor captains will be notified in advance of a pending drill and the exercise will be coordinated to the greatest extent possible with the various units in the building.

University Housing in coordination with OEHS conducts fire evacuation drills in campus residential facilities.
