Fire Drills and Evacuation Procedures

In accordance with state laws, RISD conducts fire drills on a periodic basis. When the alarm sounds, everyone must evacuate the building as quickly as possible. During an alarm students should cooperate with any requests from RISD or Fire Department officials. Failure to evacuate a building during an alarm results in consequences that could include fines and/or dismissal.

It is very important that you familiarize yourself with evacuation procedures and multiple routes prior to an emergency. In the case of a fire, seconds may mean life or death. When the alarm sounds, get out of the building as quickly as possible. Never assume that the alarm is false! Exit charts are posted on the back of each room door.
