Safety Tips of the Week
Smoke / Fire on Campus: 
  • Alert persons in the area of the fire.  Activate the fire alarm at the nearest pull-station.
  • The fire alarm means evacuate! You can return after the “all clear” or the alarm stops.  Evacuate using the nearest safe exit; please consider alternative egress routes as well.
  • Close doors to confine fire…but we prefer you not lock the doors.
  • Do not use the elevators. Stairwells are safe haven areas for those unable to evacuate.
  • Call the UW-Parkside Police from a safe location.
