Public safety will be conducting fire drills in academic and residence hall buildings over the next two weeks, starting Monday, January 16. During the fire drills, all personnel are asked to please exit the building safely and wait outside until given the all-clear by public safety officers or Portland Fire Bureau. This is a good time to discuss safe evacuation of the building with your respective departments.
Additionally, please help keep UP buildings safe and review work areas for any potential hazards. Do not use extension cords for any permanent wiring, keep aisles, hallways, and exit doors clear of any storage items, and during this time of year, if you are using a heater at your desk, please ensure it is kept 3 ft. away from any combustible items and is turned off at the end of the day.
If there are any questions or concerns, please contact Jeff Rook, public safety, at x7161 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
