News & Events Comments Off on Fire Drill

Based on the popular vote, the fire drill will be held on Tuesday July 13th.  As you already know this drill will be accompanied by ice cream on the Plaza!  To ensure that we have enough ice cream, please RSVP for your suite by July 6th.  Your suite will be issued tickets on July 12th for appropriate number of participants.

The floors will be alarmed in groups of three from the top to bottom.  The floors are scheduled as follows:

13, 12, 11 – 1:30pm

10, 9, 8 –     2:00pm

7, 6, 5 –       2:30pm

4, 3, 2 –       3:00pm

Both 1st and 2nd floors will alarm with each group

 During the drill you can expect:

  • To hear the alarm, see the strobes, and hear an announcement confirming “this is a test” 
  • Exit your floor using the stairs (if possible) and use the elevators when returning to your appropriate floor.
    • Exit the building on the 2nd floor and proceed to the Plaza for ice cream.
    • Physically impaired employees are welcomed to use the elevators for the drill.
    • Be directed to the ice cream line
      • You are more than welcome to remain on the Plaza while enjoying your ice cream however, please don’t linger in front of the doors so others can also complete the drill.   

 Other items to mention:

  • Before the evacuation we recommend that you meet as a suite to discuss your evacuation process and rendezvous location.  Refer to the Tenant Handbook for more information http://marquetteplaza.com/tenant-resources.  See pages 29-33.  
  • Once you have filtered out of the building you will be directed to a line for an ice cream treat.
  • Don’t forget your ticket!
  • Notify all guests that may be in your office or plan to visit your suite that day.
    • Base Management will post notifications at all entrances and exits to provided added awareness.
