In the event of a fire or activation of an alarm, immediately evacuate the building at the closest Exit as instructed to do so and proceed to your designated rally point. Be sure to close office and classroom doors before you leave. Faculty and staff are to notify students and visitors in their respective areas to assemble at the assigned rally points for their particular buildings or locations.
Assist disabled persons to the designated rescue stations as you are exiting the building and notify the Rally Point Leader the location and the number of persons you left at the rescue station. Fire and EMS personal will help these people from the building to help reduce the chances of injuries and death. The college will conduct a fire drill twice a year with students present. Students/staff or faculty with a disability that would require special assistance during an emergency to evacuate a building needs to enroll through the Counseling Center to help put in place an action plan. http://www.halifaxcc.edu/StudntRe/counseling/disabilityservices.php
