Fire Drills: Risk Management - Northwestern University

Illinois and Evanston laws require regular fire drills in dormitories, fraternities and sororities. They are conducted regularly to familiarize residents with the sound of the fire alarm, emergency exits, and procedures for evacuating the building.

You must respond to the drill and abide by the established procedures. Resident Assistants and Hall Coordinators are responsible for seeing that students are familiar with fire drill procedures.
