We have taken many precautions to ensure our patients', visitors' and employee's safety in the event of fire. We have detailed emergency contingency and evacuation plans to deal with fire. We also conduct fire drills regularly and train staff at all levels on the actions to take in case of a fire.
Tell staff if there is a medical or safety emergency, and use a hospital phone to dial 1-5-5, Yale-New Haven Hospital’s emergency telephone number. If you are using a cell phone, dial 9-1-1.
In case of a fire, the overhead page system will alert staff, patients and families by saying “Code Red,” and the name of the building and floor. Fire exits are clearly marked. Elevators should not be used. If you see smoke or fire, alert a staff member or dial 155 from a hospital phone
