Evacuation: Building Emergency Team

The chemistry building only has one sound to indicate an alarm: a ringing bell. No other sounds will come from the speakers. Any sound coming out of the building speakers means GET OUT!You are required to evacuate by the nearest exit and not walk through the building to your favourite exit.

Each and every alarm is treated as a genuine emergency. Building Emergency Team Members are assigned on every floor of the building to ensure complete and prompt evacuation. You must obey the directions of the BET members, as they are for your safety!
