Victim’s are encouraged to seek medical attention immediately. If medical attention is sought, do not shower, change clothes or disturb the scene of the attack.

Fire Alarm Evacuation Procedure
When the fire alarm is heard, leave the building via the nearest exit and travel a safe distance from the building. Assist all persons with impaired mobility to the nearest exit. Faculty and Staff should notify Police and or Fire Department/Emergency Services of any known student or visitor with impaired mobility who is unable to independently exit the building.
EVERY ALARM SHOULD BE TREATED AS A POTENTIAL FIRE
State and local regulations require all occupants to leave the building if a fire alarm occurs. Before a fire occurs, there are some simple steps you can follow that will aid your survival. Find the nearest exit and also an alternate exit, should the primary one be blocked. Ensure that the path out is clear of any obstructions and that all doors leading out of the building can be opened. Find the nearest fire extinguisher and learn how to use it if necessary.
IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE:
1. Rescue any person in immediate danger.
3. Call Police or Emergency Services at 911. They will initiate a conference call with you and the Memphis Fire Department. Stay on the phone until the Fire Department and or Emergency Services obtain all information.
4. When the fire alarm sounds, evacuate the building immediately using the nearest exit. As you exit, close as many doors as possible between you and the fire. Move a safe distance away from the building (at least 50 feet).
5. Before opening any door, feel it with the back of your hand. If it is hot, do not open it! If it is not hot, open cautiously, bracing yourself against it to slam it shut if you feel a rush of heat.
6. If the closest exit is blocked, go to an alternative exit. If all doors are blocked, exit through a ground floor window, but watch for broken glass.
