Fire drills in University Courtyard are conducted each semester during the academic year and during the summer (3 times a year). In 2011, fire drills were conducted on January 25-28th, May 27th, and September 6-9th. All residents must evacuate their room, suite and building area immediately during the sounding of a fire alarm or upon the direction of a University Courtyard staff member. The University Courtyard evacuation assembly point is in Parking Lot G. Attempting to re-enter a building area without permission from University or Housing staff is prohibited. Referral to the University Courtyard conduct system or to Fresno State Police for criminal/legal action may also be some of the consequences for failing to comply with the evacuation policy.
Ag Operations does not conduct fire drills for the eight (8) Living Quarters. The Living Quarters are single units, and residents have been instructed on emergencies and the evacuation assembly point location is nearby at O’Neill Park.
