Fire Safety

Follow proper fire safety procedure
If you detect fire or smoke, remain calm and do the following:
  • Close the door to confine the fire and smoke
  • Activate the Fire Alarm - a small red box located on the wall near each exit.
    Follow the instructions on the alarm.
  • Report the fire. Call UAB Police at 911 or use a Help Phone, identify yourself and tell the dispatcher the exact location of the fire or smoke and what is burning.
  • Evacuate. Proceed to the nearest exit, move away from the building, and assemble in a location predetermined by your Building Disaster Plan to provide an accounting for all personnel. Do not return to the building unless told to do so by the fire department, police, or the safety officer.
