Where should I go in the event of a fire?

Evacuation maps are posted throughout all CRC buildings. All smaller dormitories have written evacuation plans that are posted adjacent to the evacuation maps. Designated meeting points for each residence are noted on the posted plans. Many larger buildings have specific emergency evacuation plans identifying designated gathering points during an evacuation. Residence Assistants, Supervisors and Faculty can provide you the location of the designated meeting point for your building. If you are in doubt of your building’s specific gathering point, remember to proceed away from the building. Failure to move away from the building could result in personal injury or hindrance of emergency responders’ efforts.
