A log of all campus student housing fires, including the nature, date, time, and general location of each fire is maintained by the Safety and Security Office. Copies of the log are available upon request and inquiries regarding the log should be directed to Drury University Safety and Security.

Fire drills will be conducted in the residential halls 4 times a year; these will be within the first 10 days of each semester and within the week following fall and spring breaks. Fire Safety training is conducted every fall semester in conjunction with the Springfield Fire Department.

Fire Plan

(Developed by the Office of Safety and Security)

This fire plan has been developed to insure the safety of Drury University faculty, staff and students. Part of the Safety and Security departmentâ??s responsibilities is to make sure that drills are being done, the students understand the importance of these drills, and that all buildings on campus are in compliance with the Springfield Fire Department code requirements. All persons should read this plan and review it periodically in order to know what to do in case of a fire.

Fundamentals of Fire Prevention

  • Be clean; maintain cleanliness and order in your work area. Good housekeeping is the best protection against fires.
  • Be alert; early fire detection can prevent damage.
  • Make it a habit to be alert for fire hazards and report all potential dangers to your supervisors immediately. Be especially alert during early morning hours when there are fewer people on campus.
  • Be ready. Know where fire alarms, extinguishers and hoses are located and how to use them.
  • If you see or smell smoke, report it to your supervisor at once and secure any malfunctioning machinery.
  • Know the floor plan of your area, the safe areas and evacuation routes.
  • Know which extinguisher to use and how to use it.
  • Know exactly what your duties are.

In Case of a Fire

  1. When you hear a fire alarm, close all doors.
  2. Leave on all electrical and gas equipment unless it poses a clear and present fire hazard.
  3. Do not turn out lights.
  4. If fire or water threatens valuable records or items, close and lock safes and fireproof cabinets.

In residence halls:

  1. Pull the closest fire alarm box and report the exact location and nature of the fire to Safety and Security by calling 873-7911. It is important to call Drury officers so they can direct and assist responding fire personnel.
  2. Close the room door.
  3. Alert other people in the area.
  4. Do not panic.
  5. Do not try to put out the fire; if the fire is small in nature and you are confident in using a fire extinguisher, then an attempt may be made to extinguish the fire.
  6. Evacuate the building by using stairs instead of elevators, but remain nearby to help firefighters find the exact location of the fire.
