It is important for employees to become familiar with the locations of all possible exits from NEC’s buildings, fire extinguishers, and fire alarm boxes. Any employee who sees or smells smoke should contact Security at extension 1290 for the Main Building, extension 1333 for the Residence Hall, or extension 1241 for the St. Botolph Building. Employees in the 295 Huntington Avenue Building should contact Security in the Main Building at extension 1290.
Any employee who sees flames of a fire should pull the nearest fire alarm, leave the building, and then notify Security of the location of the fire.
All persons including students, faculty, and administration must exit the premises immediately in the event of a fire alarm or any other order that the premises be vacated. This policy is based on the compelling need to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all people in the event of an actual emergency. Therefore, it is the Conservatory’s policy to treat all alarms as if there is an actual emergency. Any employee who fails to exit the premises immediately may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment. Any student who fails to vacate the premises immediately may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion.
