Fire

In the event of a large fire, the building should be evacuated by activating the fire alarm at the pull station. Pull stations are located throughout SCS buildings, primarily near exits. The fire alarm pull will set off continuous buzzers throughout the building, signal occupants to leave the building, and notify emergency response personnel. Laboratory personnel may attempt to extinguish small fires if: If the fire grows or becomes unmanageable, activate the nearest fire alarm pull. Meet the fire department to direct them to the affected area.
