What's Going On?

Fire Safety

Each facility is equipped with fire prevention/notification devices. It is the responsibility of the student to immediately notify Campus Living if one of the devices is not working, has been discharged, or needs repair. Batteries are not to be removed from the smoke detectors.

Fire drills will be conducted routinely for the residents. All residents are expected to participate in the drills as if an actual emergency. All residents are to follow the following procedures for fire:
   1. Signal an alarm immediately by engaging nearest fire alarm pull station.
   2. Follow evacuation procedures.
   3. Contact 911
   4. Contact an RA

Following any evacuation, DO NOT return to the building until directed to do so by a Police Department Officer or Fire Department personnel.

Severe Weather

 Severe weather warnings are sounded by the TSTC siren alarm system. The warning will be signaled by a three minute steady blast of the siren.   

Lavaca Hall residents should take the following action after any warning signal:

Proceed to the first floor. Assemble in the hallway with all doors closed.

Take a kneeling position with hands interlocked covering the back of the neck and head.   

Red River Apartments residents should take the following action:

Proceed to the internal most portion of the apartment.

Take a kneeling position with hands interlocked covering the back of the neck and head.

Return to normal activity only after the ‘all clear’ signal has sounded, which will consist of six, 10-second blasts from the siren.

Get involved!


In the rare event single student housing needs to be evacuated, residents will be directed to congregate at a central location, which is typically the Student Recreation Center for further instructions.

If the entire campus is to be evacuated, an evacuation route will be announced for students to take from housing. Those residents without cars will be directed to a central location to be picked up and taken to a secured location.
