Emergency Plan GENERAL EVACUATION GUIDELINES Begin the evacuation process upon hearing the general fire alarm or being given verbal instructions to evacuate. Use fire stairwells to evacuate, never use elevators. Walk, do not run. Stay calm. Always place your hand on the back of the door before opening the door. If it is hot, do not open the door; find an alternate route. If you enter a smoke filled area, seek another exit route if possible. If you must pass through an area congested by smoke, cover your mouth and nose with a towel or piece of clothing, dampened with water, if possible. Crawl low along the wall to the exit, using the walls and doorways as a guide in case you are unable to see due to smoke or power loss. Ensure that fire doors are not blocked open and Precede to the designated evacuation assembly areas. Report anyone stranded to the Fire Control Room, Emergency Response Team member or Fire Department personnel. In the event you are unable to evacuate due to a blocked exit or other barrier, try to enter a guest room or other area free from fire and smoke. Immediately call Security at extension "0" and advise them of your situation and location. Once fire in the room, start to fill the bathtub with as much water as possible. Soak towels, sheets or other fabric in the water and place the wet fabric in the cracks between the door and the floor, frame, etc. Turn off the heat or air-conditioning unit. Cover the vent with wet towels or sheets. Do not open the window or try to break the glass unless directed by Fire Department personnel.
