If you hear the fire bells, please observe the following:
– If the bells ring intermittently (approximately 30 strokes per minute), you must stand by. There is an alarm elsewhere in the building, but you do NOT need to evacuate. Please stand by and listen for updates and instructions that will be announced over the public announcement system.
– If the bells ring continuously (approximately 300 strokes per minute), you must evacuate the building immediately. Proceed to the nearest fire exit stairwell and descend to the ground floor. Do NOT use the elevators. When you have reached the outside, move away from the building. Go to the designated assembly area (sidewalk along 400 Burrard Street) and wait for the floor warden for your floor. Do NOT go back into the building for any reason until the Fire Department has advised when it is safe to do so.
– If you discover a fire, you must leave the fire area, and IMMEDIATELY sound the fire alarm system by activating the red alarm pull station located near the stairwell doors. Attempt to fight the fire with the available fire equipment but ONLY when the fire is small and is not threatening your safety.
