Fire Safety Protocols
For Bartley, Prettie, Avila, & the Apartments
Manual fire alarm stations are located throughout Bartley Residence, Prettie Residence, Avila, and the Apartment Complexes. It is the responsibility of each guest to be familiar with the location of alarm pull stations and fire exits throughout Residence.
The fire alarm is a continuous loud ringing of a bell. Upon hearing the alarm, all guests are to leave the building via the nearest safe exit.
Our Conference Services staff and Conference Associates have received special fire safety training and will act as Fire Wardens. All rooms will be checked in the area where the alarm has sounded. Any person(s) found remaining within the affected Residence will be liable to a fine of up to $200.00. Assisted by the University Security staff, the Thunder Bay Fire Department will respond to all fire alarms and their personnel will be in charge of the situation. Once the "all clear" is given, guests will be allowed to return to their rooms.
If you detect a fire, activate the nearest pull station, call out to persons around you and proceed to the closest safe phone to call (807) 343-8911. Provide Security Services with all the particulars about the emergency.
Evaluate the area and take refuge in the designated safe area for your residence.
If you detect a fire call (807) 343-8911 from the nearest safe area/place or from the emergency phone located in the laundry room. You can press the "hotline" button on any Nortel phone to reach Security Services directly.
