Fire Drill Checklist

In the event of a fire, pull the fire alarm.  The integrated fire alarm system is for us only in the event of a fire and should NOT be used to evacuate the building for any other emergency. 


  • Remind students which exit to take as noted in each classroom, regardless of where they are parked.
  • Tell them to put on coats and to pick up purse/wallet/phone/keys.  Leave all books, notebooks, etc. in the classroom. 
  • Tell all students they MUST move to an area 300 feet away from the building. 
  • You are to take a roster or safety sign-in sheet and a pen/pencil with you. 
  • Close all classroom windows.
  • Turn off lights.
  • Close all classroom doors. 

Once Outdoors:

  • Announce that class is NOT cancelled automatically -- notification of official cancellation of class will be announced by campus personnel.  
  • Ask students to inform you if they select to leave and take note of all who leave the premises. 
  • Confirm through a roster or safety sign-in sheet that all students who were present that day are out of the building.  You will be asked by fire officials to confirm this.
  • Do not re-enter the building until permission is granted by the Fire Department and/or Public Safety.
