At staff orientation/training, residence directors not only test their fire equipment but familiarize the staff with the building and the equipment so they know how to operate it.
They watch a video “Get Out and Stay Alive” and then proceed to the maintenance barn for on-the-spot training, i.e. knowing how to use a fire extinguisher. The staff also goes through fire safety with the students at orientation. Following are the Fire Drill Notes and Emergency Fire Procedures that residence directors go over with the staff before the students arrive.
