Fire Drills

Fire drills are held at UMB twice each year. The purpose of fire drills are to educate the occupants in the fire safety features of the building (like the sound of the fire alarm), to help occupants learn the egress paths available, and to ensure the correct response procedures are followed. Fire drills help prepare occupants to respond quickly, calmly, and safely during emergency situations.

Fire drills typically occur in early spring and early fall and are coordinated with each school/organization independently. Fire drills are unannounced to building occupants and should always be taken seriously.
