It is against the law to remain within the building during a fire alarm event.

Please note: The buildings that comprise the Health Sciences Campus are not equipped with an intercom or loudspeaker system to enable the provision of real-time information during an alarm event. Therefore anyone who is inside the building during a fire alarm event must obey all instructions given by the emergency evacuation team (Building Wardens during normal business hours) or the on-duty Protection Officer (outside normal business hours) until the all clear has been issued and any emergency vehicles have departed.

If you discover a fire:

  • Remain calm and leave the danger area
  • Do not enter a smoke-filled room
  • Close all doors on the way out
  • Sound the alarm by pulling nearest manual fire alarm pull station
  • Call Protection Services at x5411
  • Use the nearest safe exit and proceed to a safe distance away from the building:
    • To the parking lot north of Peter Morand Crescent
    • To the parking lot west of Roger Guindon Avenue
    • To the east along the path separating the two Peter Morand buildings
  • Do not attempt to use the elevators

If you hear the building fire alarm:

  • Turn off electrical equipment and extinguish all open flames
  • Touch the door before opening
    • If it is hot, stay where you area and call Protection Services at x5411
    • If it is not, leave the building by the nearest safe exit, closing all doors behind you.
  • Do not enter a smoke-filled corridor; it may be safer to remain where you are.
    • Close the door, and block any openings with a damp cloth or towel.
  • Use the nearest safe exit and proceed either to the one of the two marshalling areas near RGN:
    • To the parking lot north of Peter Morand Crescent
    • To the parking lot west of Roger Guindon Avenue
    • To the east along the path separating the two Peter Morand Buildings
  • Do not attempt to use the elevators
