Fire Drill Follow-Up.
We would like to thank students, faculty, and staff for their cooperation with the recent fire drill, especially in light of the technical issues we experience with the alarms sounding only intermittently (this problem has since been resolved). Despite the technical problems, we were pleased with everyone's cooperation in complying with verbal announcements, where necessary, to clear the building. We would also like to pass along a few reminders:
Please use the nearest staircase to exit the building, unless the staircase is overcrowded. In that case, please seek out an alternate staircase (there are at least two on each floor). There are maps in the elevator bays on each floor identifying the locations of the staircases. Do not use the elevators.
Once in the staircase, please proceed all the way to the first floor -- do not exit at the third floor in order to use the atrium staircase.
Please do not take time to gather up your belongings -- your safety is more important than your possessions. If you feel that you must take any valuables with you, please "grab and go"
-- do not waste precious seconds or minutes powering down your laptop computer or packing up your belongings.
Once you exit the building, please move either eastward or westward down the sidewalk so that you will be out of harm's way if any windows shatter. For your safety, please do not step into traffic or cross against a traffic light.
Failure to leave the building promptly, or failure to follow the directions of Law School personnel, may subject a student to a Code of Conduct charge.
