Smoke? Fire? Not sure? PULL THAT ALARM!

In the event that you suspect smoke or fire, quick response is the key in employee and patient safety. In the past, fires have occurred on the East Baltimore campus and a fire alarm was never pulled. No matter what the circumstances, the fire alarm always needs to be activated. Please keep these steps in mind when responding to smoke and/or fire:

  1. Remove anyone from immediate danger.
  2. Close the door to the area.
  3. Pull the fire alarm (found along your exit routes).
  4. Call CENTREX at 5-4444 to give location of fire (if known).
  5. Only use a fire extinguisher if you have been formally trained on an annual basis.
