Do I have to participate in fire drills and how often do they happen?

All persons who are in a building when a fire alarm sounds must exit the building or go to the nearest Area of Assistance. Fire drills are conducted in accordance with the Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code. The frequency of fire drills depends on the occupancy use of the building. See the following table for more information.
|Group or Occupancy||Frequency||Examples|
|Assembly Buildings Group A||Quarterly||Eagle Bank Arena, Center for the Arts, Johnson Center|
|Education / Business Group B||Annually||Innovation Hall, Colgan Hall, Van Metre Hall|
|Adult and Child Care Group E||Monthly||Child Development Center|
|Residence Halls Group R-2||Four Annually||Northern Neck, Potomac Heights, Whitetop Hall|
