In accordance with New York State Law, Monroe Community College must conduct
fire drills each year. The schedule for the Fall 2002 semester is as follows:
Wednesday, September 25, 2002 at 7:00 p.m.
Monday, September 30, 2002 at 9:50 a.m.
The purpose is to educate the college community on the proper method to exit
the college buildings should an emergency arise. As fire drills are now
announced in advance, please take the opportunity to discuss the schedule with
others in your office and classroom.
Please remember that it takes a group effort to make a quick and safe
evacuation of the building. Once everyone is out of the room, close all windows
and doors. Shut off the lights, leave the building and get away from the
buildings and exit the courtyards.
Emergency Assembly Areas provide an area of temporary refuge for the
handicapped during an emergency or evacuation process. These areas are
generally located near or at a stair tower. A blue sign inscribed with white
lettering, "Emergency Assembly Area", identifies each Emergency Assembly Area.
The handicapped will gather at the following locations:
Second floor, west side, next to stairwell, overlooking the Bus Loop
Next to 1-300
Plaza Level, Library Lobby, West Side
Next to 5-222
