FIRE

Call 911 and activate the nearest FIRE ALARM.


Alarms sound only in certain buildings. Fire Department and University Police Department must be notified.

Fire Department 246-2424 - University Police 230-5098 - Arkadelphia Police 246-4545

EVACUATE BUILDING
Announce over intercom or spread the alarm any way possible. Feel doors for heat. If cool, exit carefully. If hot, do not open the door. Stay where you are. If you see smoke, crouch near the floor as you exit. If you see fire, confie it by closing doors and windows. Do not use the elevators. Leave buildings by the closest exit or the posted evacuation plan. Assist the handicapped. If possible, close all windows and doors.

USE FIRE EXTINGUISHERS ON SMALL FIRES ONLY IF SAFE TO DO SO. Pull the pin in the handle. Aim at the base of the fire. Squeeze the nozzle while sweeping the extinguisher back and forth.

AFTER EVACUATION Move away from the building. Move to the building's designated evacuation assembly area. Assist the handicapped. Do not re-enter the building for any reason until emergency personnel or appropriate university officials give permission to enter.

 The reason I am where I am today is because of Henderson State University -- the professors, the atmosphere of learning, and the expectations of all the students, along with the rigor of the discipline in which I studied. I hope that I can do half of what Henderson did for me to those I come in contact with through my career and volunteering!
