Fire Evacuation

The discovery of smoke or fire within a building represents an immediate threat to life and property. If you encounter smoke or fire conditions, immediately activate the nearest fire alarm.

If you encounter a NorQuest College official or security personnel, immediately identify yourself and describe where the smoke or fire was seen.

Follow these evacuation instructions:

  • Immediately leave the building, in an orderly manner, by the nearest stairwell.
  • Do not use elevators during an emergency evacuation.
  • Those who are physically unable to proceed down the stairs are to remain on the floor near the emergency exit and wait for assistance.
  • Do not change direction in stairwells.
  • Should designated exits be endangered, occupants are to proceed to an alternate exit without awaiting further direction.
  • Follow specific directions of a designated emergency warden. Failure to follow the direction of an emergency warden may result in disciplinary action.
  • After leaving the building, move away from the building as directed by authorities.
  • Everyone must remain outside the building until the 'all clear' signal is delivered.

False alarms

  • Since all alarms are treated as real, the intentional sounding of a false alarm is a very serious offense. Any individual identified as having pulled an alarm without cause, will face possible termination from the program and the pressing of criminal charges.
  • Anyone having information related to a false alarm should call Facilities at 780.644.6215.
