Attention:Think safety first. Do not put yourself in jeopardy. If you suspect fire in a room, feel the temperature of a door before opening. Note:Protect yourself from heat, smoke, and gases produced by the fire. Logic:Your primary objective is to get professional, emergency personnel on site as quickly as possible. Try to extinguish a fire only after you have notified your supervisor, the property management office and called 911. Remember:When in doubt, call 911 and evacuate.
Fire or Smoke
In the event that you detect actual fire or smoke in your area, it is imperative that the proper notifications are made and that the established Life Safety Plan for your company and the property is strictly adhered to.
- In case of fire or smoke in your area, remove anyone from immediate danger. This means the room where the fire or smoke is located or the immediate vicinity. It may not be necessary to evacuate the building.
- If the alarm is not already sounding, go to the nearest fire alarm manual pull station on your floor and pull the station handle. This will alert the occupants on your floor, the floor below and the floor above. DO NOT attempt to extinguish the fire until an alarm has been activated and notifications have been made.
- Notify the Fire Department by calling 911 and provide the following information:
- Identify yourself and describe the situation.
- Give the name and address of the property location of the emergency, as follows:
REGIONS CENTER333 Texas StreetRegions Building or Regions TowerProvide Floor # and Suite #
- Notify the Safety Director at 429-1329. Alert your supervisor and all other occupants on your floor.
- Once you have reported the fire, attempt to extinguish it (if small) using the fire extinguishers located near the stairwells only if the fire is small and the conditions do not pose a personal threat.
- Evacuate the property immediately if the fire cannot be extinguished or if directed to do so.
