Fire Drills & Evacuation

At UF Health Jacksonville there is an internal fire plan and external disaster plan. Drills are held periodically to familiarize each department and individual with the part they play should a real disaster or fire occur. Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the hospital fire and disaster plans and should have knowledge of what their responsibilities include during a disaster drill.

Fire and Evacuation

A - Pull the alarm, dial 4-2222, Code Red, give location
