If the Fire Alarm goes off, please turn-off all Bunsen Burners and exit your Lab calmly and quietly using either of the Exits to the Hallway. Turn Right and use the South Stairwell to exit the Building. If you are in the Incubator Rooms or the Cold Room, please exit the Incubator or Cold Room. Turn Left and use the South Stairwell to exit the Building. Keep in Mind that several Hundred Students from other Second and Third Floor Labs will be using the Stairwells. Do not use the Elevators. Regroup with the rest of the Lab Outside of the Building in the Gravel-Paved Bike Rack Area between the Science Labs Building and the Sciences Lecture Hall. We want to be sure all Students have safely exited the Building. Stay out of any Street or Pathway so Emergency Personnel and their Equipment can be moved into place.

Introduction to MIC 101 Page 3 Earthquake In the Event of an Earthquake, turn-off all Bunsen Burners and get underneath your Lab Bench or in a Doorway. If you are in the Incubators or the Cold Room, move as rapidly as possible into the Hallway. Expect Light Fixtures, Ceiling Tiles, and Lab Equipment to fall and make considerable Noise. The Fire Alarm may go off and the Fire Doors may automatically close. Stay away from Windows. The Floor to Ceiling Windows at the South End of the Hallway near the Stairwell and the Windows making-up the West Wall of the Stairwell could shatter during or shortly after the Earthquake. Stay as far away from any Windows as possible. The Fire Doors may automatically close. These will include the Fire Doors down the Hallway to the North toward Kleiber Hall, the Fire Doors immediately in front of the Elevator, and the Fire Doors at the Entrances to all Stairwells. You will need to press on the Aluminum Bar to open these Fire Doors. It is possible that the Earthquake may cause a Fire in the Building. Do not assume that the Fire Doors closed because of the Earthquake. If the Aluminum Bar or the Fire Door itself is Hot, don’t open it. A significantly stronger, structurally damaging Motion may follow shortly thereafter so it is Important to exit the Building as soon as possible. Once the Motion ceases, immediately exit your Lab calmly and quietly using either of the Exits to the Hallway. Turn Right and use the South Stairwell to exit the Building. If you were in the Incubator Rooms or the Cold Room, turn Left and use the South Stairwell to exit the Building The Stairs are designed to move independently of any Motions of the Building. Don’t be alarmed by new and interesting Gaps, Cracks, Motions, Noises and/or Broken Glass in the Stairwell. Keep in Mind that several Hundred Students from other Second and Third Floor Labs will be using the Stairwells. Do not use the Elevators. Regroup with the rest of the Lab Outside of the Building in the Gravel-Paved Bike Rack Area between the Science Labs Building and the Sciences Lecture Hall. We want to be sure all Students have safely exited the Building.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
