Know where the nearest FIRE EXTINGUISHER and FIRE ALARM in your work area is located. (Please become familiar with their use; the Fire Marshal can provide training as requested)

If there is a small, extinguishable fire

  • Report the fire and initiate building evacuation by activating the nearest fire alarm.
  • If you have been trained and can do so safely, use the nearest fire extinguisher. Remember PASS: Pull the pin, Aim the extinguisher hose towards the base of the flame, Squeeze the lever above the handle, Sweep from side to side.
  • If the fire is not extinguished within 5 seconds of using the extinguisher immediately leave the area.
  • Call the SLCC Campus Fire Marshal, 801-957-4148 or Facilities Department at 801-957-5911 or 801-898-4910 to report the incident.

    (Activating the alarm will automatically report the fire to both the Facilities Department on campus and the local fire department.)

  2. Evacuate the Building
