    1. Know the location of fire extinguishers in your area and know how to use them. Training and information is available through the UWA Emergency Preparedness department.
    2. On a minor fire that appears controllable IMMEDIATELY contact the University Police Department and the Building Coordinator. Promptly direct the charge of the fire extinguisher toward the base of the flame.
    3. On large fires that do not appear controllable, IMMEDIATELY call 911 and the Building Coordinator. Then, evacuate all affected rooms, closing all doors to confine the fire and reduce oxygen - DO NOT LOCK DOORS!
