Fire alarm pulls and fire extinguishers
Fire alarm pulls are positioned all over the building. There is one fire alarm pull to your left by the patio door and two in the back of the room by the patio exit doors. Fire extinguishers are located throughout the building in plexiglass cases. The closest ones to you are located just outside these doors along the wall to your left. Instructions on how to use fire extinguishers are located on each one. In the unlikely event of a fire, please make your way to the Fetzer parking lot so that our staff can ensure everyone has evacuated the building. In other exit directions, we ask people to evacuate to a hill behind Fetzer.)
In the event of a fire, follow the exit procedure for your room. Once you exit Fetzer, please proceed to the front parking lot, located directly in the front of the building, so that our staff can ensure everyone has evacuated the building.
