Fire drills are required by law and should be conducted as if there were an actual fire, with the exception that handicapped people may stay at the emergency exit stairwell door rather than leaving the building. A drill may involve the whole building or selected floors. Tenants will receive written notice of dates and times of scheduled drills. Unannounced drills will also occur from time to time.
Anyone detecting fire or smoke should:
- Activate the nearest fire alarm pull box located next to the emergency exit stairwells on each floor. Call 911 and the Security Office at (801) 932-6111, giving as much detail as possible about the location and severity of the fire and whether or not there are injuries.
- Alert the Floor Wardens. (See details on previous page.)
- Leave the building.
When the alarm sounds, all occupants should:
- Go to the nearest emergency exit stairwell. DO NOT USE ELEVATORS.
- Feel the stairwell door. If hot to the touch, DO NOT OPEN.
- Stay low to the floor and open the stairwell door slightly. If there is smoke in the stairwell, CLOSE THE DOOR.
- If heat or smoke is not detected, use the stairwell to exit the building, holding the handrail.
- If no stairwell is free of heat and smoke, call 911 and tell them your precise location and then the Security Office at (801) 932-6111.
- Once outside the building, stand in a designated "staging areas," clear of building entrances, driveways and roads so the Fire Department will not be hampered or delayed.
- Do not re-enter the building until the Fire Department gives the "all clear."
