Fire Alarm & Safety Devices Policy

When a fire alarm sounds in a building the occupants of that building must immediately evacuate and call Campus Security & Public Safety at ext. 2222. Evacuation maps are posted in all campus buildings and should be followed whenever possible. Entering or re-entering a building in which a fire alarm is sounding is prohibited unless authorized by an official of the Spokane Fire Department, the Campus Security & public Safety department, or other University Official. Failure to evacuate a building during a fire alarm, entering or re-entering a building during a fire alarm may constitute a violation of the Student Code of Conduct. Tampering with, or the unauthorized use of, fire safety equipment such as extinguishers, smoke and heat detectors, alarm pull stations, fire sprinklers, signage or emergency exits is prohibited. This includes activation of a false fire alarm and tampering with any equipment or fixtures used for the purpose of fire, health, or building safety.
