Fire Safety Protocol

Follow these steps to know what to do in case of fire:

  1. In case of small fires, use the fire extinguisher to put them out. Report this to security right away so they can respond and be on standby. You can call the Benilde emergency hotline at: 
    • Taft Campus: 0917-177-2000, (02) 8230-5100 Local 1911
    • AKIC Campus: 0917-190-4000, (02) 8230-5100 Local 2911
    • D+A Campus: 0917-192-3000, (02) 8230-5100 Local 3911
    • The Atrium@Benilde: 0917-310-4000
    • Sports and Dorm Complex: 0917-824-7000

Fire extinguishers are placed in the hallways/corridors and inside laboratories and workshops.

  1. If the fire can’t be put out using the fire extinguisher or is no longer manageable, alert others, pull the fire alarm, and evacuate immediately. Fire alarm pull stations are along the end of hallways/corridors. Call the nearest fire station or dial these numbers:
    • Bureau of Fire Protection (NCR)
      • (02) 8426-0246
      • (02) 8426-0219
    • Association of Philippine Volunteer Fire Brigade
      • (02) 8522-2222
  2. Hearing fire alarms, seeing a fire, or hearing verbal announcements are signals for you to evacuate right away. Do not use elevators. Use the nearest safe and unobstructed exit. 
  3. If there’s smoke, crawl low through it.
  4. All associates (faculty and non-teaching) are to act as floor marshalls and will assist students and guests during evacuation.

We regularly conduct drills to practice what to do in case of fire. In situations like this, stay calm and follow what you did during drills. Make it a point to know the locations of exits, alarms, and fire extinguishers before these incidents happen. Misuse of the fire alarm will be investigated and will result in disciplinary action.
