Fire Alarms

When the fire alarms sound, you must leave the building immediately. Persons who do not evacuate during a fire alarm could be prosecuted.

If you discover a fire, locate and activate the nearest fire alarm pull station. Leave the area of the fire immediately. Once you have reached an area of safety, contact LCC Police to report what you observed when you discovered the fire.

Do not use elevators during a fire alarm. Use the nearest stairway to get to ground level and exit the building.

Persons with disabilities - go to stairway landings and wait for emergency rescue personnel. Stairwells are constructed with a higher fire rating than any other areas of a building. Emergency personnel responding to the building will be checking the stairway landings for persons with disabilities upon their arrival.

Stay together as a group. Faculty should be prepared to account for their students. Notify LCC Police (dial 911 from a college phone or (517) 483-1800 from a non-college phone) of any persons with disabilities requiring assistance. If possible, have someone stay behind with persons with disabilities until emergency personnel arrive.

When evacuating, remember to turn off the lights and lock your office or classroom behind you.

Remain calm and walk - do not run.

Once outside the building, keep at least 100 feet from the building and any emergency vehicles.

Stay outside the building until police or fire personnel have given an "All Clear" announcement.

In the event of a fire, remember these guidelines:

  • Rescue others and remove yourself.
  • Activate the nearest fire alarm pull station.
  • Confine the fire by closing doors.
  • Extinguish small fires, if you can; otherwise evacuate.
