1801 K Street is protected by a bell alarm system. When a manual fire alarm on a floor is pulled, the alarm bell will automatically ring on each floor throughout the building. The Engineering staff or on-site security will investigate the situation.
Smoke and heat detectors are located in areas that might be prone to fire – those areas with electrical equipment and wiring – such as mechanical rooms, electric rooms, telephone closets, elevator lobbies, and janitorial closets. When activated, these will also initiate the system into alarm.
When a pull station, smoke detector or heat detector is activated due to a fire conditions, then all elevators will be recalled to the lobby level and parked. Use only the stairwells to evacuate the building in the event of a fire. Click here to view the Stairwell Locations Map.
All tenants should familiarize themselves with the location of fire extinguishers and fire alarm manual stations. Tenants should also know the locations of the exits, recognize the sound of the fire alarm, know how to activate the fire alarm system and notify the fire department. Proceed directly to the exit whenever the fire alarm is heard. Prior to opening a door, feel the door front to determine if there is heat behind it. If the door is hot, then do not open and find another means of egress.
