The MWU campuses are equipped with city-approved fire protection and alert systems. If there is a fire in your building, calmly find the nearest fire alarm pull station and pull to alert Security, the fire department, and all other occupants of the building. In addition to the audible alarm buzzer, the alarms are also equipped with visual strobe laser lights to help evacuees find the closest exit from the building. The moment the alarm pull station is activated, a monitor service calls the fire department.
Safety & Security and Campus Facilities take the responsibility to assure that everyone is evacuated. As a general rule, please evacuate to the parking lots or in a dirt field as far away from the building as possible. Do not congregate in any driveway and remain clear of the fire lanes. The full cooperation of faculty and staff during an evacuation is required. Any employee who fails to evacuate during a fire alarm will be subject to action my MWU and local authorities.
College students living away from home should take a few minutes to make sure they are living in a fire-safe environment. Educating students on what they can do to stay safe during the school year is important and often overlooked.
