The following message is from the Office of Emergency Management and Safety:
To comply with state fire safety guidelines and to enhance the safety of the UMW community, the University plans to conduct fire drills in administrative and academic buildings beginning the week of October 27. Please see the message in the Thursday, Oct. 23 edition of EagleEye for a tentative schedule of dates for fire drills in each building. Exact dates and times will not be posted. Be assured these exercises are being conducted in ways that minimize negative impact on the University community.
Guidelines for the fire drills are attached UMW Administrative and Academic Building Fire Drill Guidelines to this email and are posted on the Emergency Management and Safety website so that all are aware of their roles and responsibilities. Supervisors and faculty should make sure that students, faculty and staff are aware of expectations and have a general understanding of how these drills will be conducted.
