The Environmental Health and Safety office, along with the Office of Public Safety, will conduct unannounced fire drills throughout campus during the next several weeks.
IUP is required by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to perform one 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.
Here are some guidelines to follow when the building alarm sounds:
The fire drill represents an emergency situation. This practice may save lives in the event of an emergency. Please inform the Environmental Health and Safety office at 724-357-5705 or email@example.com if an event is scheduled when a drill would be extremely disruptive.
Thank you very much for your cooperation with this very important life safety drill.
