Fire Alarm Activation

When the Fire Alarm Activates in a University of Michigan Building:

Building Occupants:

  • Immediately Exit the Building
  • Gather at the designated assembly area. Do not re-enter the building until given the "all clear" by DPS, the Fire Department, or your Building Emergency Coordinator or Floor Marshal

Remember to:

  • Close doors behind you while exiting
  • Walk to the nearest exit (DO NOT USE ELEVATORS)
  • Notify DPS or Fire Department personnel if you suspect someone is injured or trapped inside the building
