Residential Evacuation Procedures

In the event of a fire in a residential unit or hall, our campus community has been instructed to close appropriate interior room doors, proceed to the nearest exit (do not use an elevator while the alarm is activated), and leave the building in an expedient and safe manner. On the rare occasion that an alarm has not been automatically activated, community members have been instructed to manually activate the nearest pull station, provided that such activation does not compromise the safety of any person. Once outside the building, Galesburg Emergency Services should be advised (via 911) of the nature and location of the fire. The Campus Safety Department (if not present at the fire location) should also be contacted at 309-341-7979) for assistance.

Upon exiting the residential unit, community members should proceed to the evacuation locations discussed during initial suite meetings. Students residing in the residential units noted below have been directed to meet at the following locations:
