EH&S is willing to work with you and your building occupants if there are specific “special circumstances” Please understand, academic settings, classes and research are not considered special circumstances. In preparing this schedule we have avoided study weeks, exam weeks, etc. Every attempt will be made to do the drills during reasonable weather. This schedule does not include sports camp drills they will be scheduled as the need arises next summer.
You are not required to do anything special for the drill. If you have any questions the day of the drill do not hesitate to ask the EH&S staff conducting the drill. Your assistance in the entire drill is needed. By working together we can maintain fire code compliance and help demonstrate a safe environment for our staff, Faculty and Students. If for whatever reason you have any more questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
