In the event of a fire alarm or evacuation order, vacate the building immediately, using the nearest exit, following instructions provided by the Campus Fire Wardens or representative. They are identified by an orange hat and reflective vest. Do not re-enter the building until your Fire Warden or Emergency Responder advises you to do so.

Evacuate the building by pulling the nearest fire alarm.

Exit maps are posted in each classroom and gathering area. Become familiar with these to determine your exit route.

Safety Tips
Yukon College has taken a number of steps to promote a safer and more secure environment. However, no program can ensure a perfectly safe locale.

Ultimately we are all responsible for our own personal safety and we should keep the following in mind:

  • Know your exits in advance.
  • Know who else is in your general area.
  • Know who to call/contact in an emergency.
  • Project an assertive image.
  • Do not prop open locked doors.
  • Keep your interaction with strangers to a minimum.
  • Have your keys (car or dorm) ready so you are not delayed getting into your car or residence.
  • If you believe you are being followed, go immediately to a public place and call emergency personnel.
  • Avoid isolated areas.
  • Ensure someone knows your whereabouts and when you expect to return.

If you believe you are in a dangerous situation:

  • Attempt to diffuse the situation (remain calm, speak clearly in an even tone);
  • Make all attempts to leave the area;
  • Activate any alarms at your disposal (including a personal ‘screamer’ device), yell, scream, make noise, and
  • Prepare to defend yourself with whatever might be available.
