Fire Alarms


The Institute will conduct fire drills throughout the year . A fire alarm is an Institute order to vacate the building. You should familiarize yourself with evacuation procedures and follow directions of staff and fire safety officers. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action including probation and a fine of $100.
