IUP is required by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to perform one fire drill per building per semester during normal times of occupancy. These drills are performed to familiarize everyone with evacuation procedures should the need arise to clear the building. The fire drill represents an emergency situation; therefore, they will be unannounced. This practice may save lives in the event of a real emergency.
Please inform the Environmental Health and Safety Department at 724-357-5705 or email@example.com if there are any events scheduled where a drill would be extremely disruptive.
Thank you very much for your cooperation with this very important Life Safety Drill.
