Know the Collin College's emergency phone number:  5555 or 972-578-5555 from an outside source such as a cell phone.

Know your building's floor plan. Know where the stairs and fire extinguishers are located. Know the locations of alternate exits from your area.

If you work in an office, know exactly how many doors you will pass along your evacuation route before you reach the nearest exit door. In heavy smoke, exit signs may be invisible. Even in heavy smoke, you can count the number of doors you pass, so you will know when you reach the exit door.

Be prepared for a 72-hour stay on campus in case of a serious emergency. Keep on hand such personal items as:

  • Medications (must be properly safeguarded)

  • Flashlight and batteries

  • Books, pack of cards, etc.

  • Some food items such as nutrition bars

  • Water in bottles or other containers

  • Sweater, change of clothes, comfortable shoes

Take advantage of training programs such as:

  • Fire Extinguisher training.

  • Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) training.

  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and First Aid training.
