Fire Drills & Evacuation

At UF Health Jacksonville there is an internal fire plan and external disaster plan. Drills are held periodically to familiarize each department and individual with the part they play should a real disaster or fire occur. Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the hospital fire and disaster plans and should have knowledge of what their responsibilities include during a disaster drill.

Fire and Evacuation

R - Rescue those in danger
A - Pull the alarm, dial 4-2222, Code Red, give location
C - Contain the fire
E - Evacuate or extinguish

Always use the proper fire extinguisher to fight fire:

Class ABC - All types of fires
Class B - (CO2) Flammable Liquids
Class C - (CO2) Electrical & Chemical Fires

Pull the pin, Aim at base of fire, Squeeze handle, Sweep side to side.

When a fire alarm sounds:

  1. Search the area you are in for fire and smoke.
  2. Close doors as rooms are searched.
  3. Stay where you are at until the alarm has silenced if you are in the hospital. Other areas, please evacuate building as in the Old Dialysis Building, Towers 1 and Tower 2 and POB Building.
  4. Use TEAMWORK.
  5. Do not panic.
  6. Compliance - all students are expected to participate in fire and evacuation drills.
