Facilities Services will conduct fire drills periodically during the year. However, treat every alarm as if it were an actual fire. Follow all fire procedures during the drills. It is VCSU's policy that participation in fire drills is mandatory and you may be subject to disciplinary procedures for non-compliance.
VCSU Housing must conduct semester fire drills in accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008.
One fire drill should be conducted each semester with the assistance of the Valley City Fire Department. The fire drill is designed to give employees and students an opportunity to evacuate the Campus Academic Buildings in a non-emergency situation. All individuals must leave the building when the alarm sounds for the drill. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action. In the event of a fire drill:
DO NOT REENTER THE BUILDING UNTIL THE ALL CLEAR ANNOUNCEMENT HAS BEEN MADE BY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT OR CAMPUS OFFICIALS.
