Emergency Plan for Máre St. Clair Hotel

The Mare St. Clair Condo-Hotel and its Home-Owners Association are committed to providing a safe environment for the homeowners/guests. Many fire safety-features have been incorporated into the design and construction of the building such as fire alarm systems, sprinkler systems, emergency lighting, fire alarm pull stations, fire extinguishers, and smoke detectors.

In an Emergency – Call 911

BUILDING EMERGENCY EVACUATION PROCEDURES

There are two stairwells located in the building One on each side (North & South). In case of emergency evacuation, residents/guests should exit through the closest stairwell and go all the way to the Lobby ground floor. Since a fire or other catastrophe could occur at-anytime, being cognizant of the building’s layout and evacuation routes will impact the ability to exit the building without panic or injury.

IF A FIRE OCCURS IN A UNIT:

Immediately call the hotel operator/security/Fire Department 911. Give the emergency operator the building, floor, and unit number as well as the street address. Describe the situation.

Without further delay, leave the unit. Be sure to close the door, leaving it unlocked. This will prevent the possible spread of heat and smoke into the corridor.

Remember to alert the homeowners of the other units on the floor. It is vitally important that everyone be given as early a warning as possible.

Use the nearest exit stairway. DO NOT prop open the doors to the exit stairwell; close stairway doors. D0 NOT open windows in the stairwell. Calmly but quickly descend and exit the building.

DO NOT use any of the building’s elevators.

IF THERE IS FIRE OR SMOKE NEAR THE UNIT:

Immediately call the hotel operator/security/ Fire Department – 911. Give the emergency operator the building, floor, and unit number as well as the street address. Describe the situation. Do not assume that someone else has already called. Before trying to leave the unit, place your hand on the door, palm down. If the door feels warm to the touch within five seconds, DO NOT attempt to open it as this indicates the presence of a dangerous fire condition in the corridor.

If the door is not warm to the touch, carefully open it and check for the presence of smoke in the corridor. If the corridor can be used, alert the other occupants on the floor and proceed to the nearest exit stairway. Be sure to close unit doors and stairway doors. DO NOT use the elevators. DO NOT open windows in the stairwells.

If the unit door is warm to the touch or heavy smoke can be detected in the corridor, keep the door closed. Seal cracks around the doors, vents, and any other places where smoke is entering with wet towels.

If smoke enters the unit and the windows are operable, open one slightly. Make yourself visible to the rescue personnel: hang a sheet or light-colored material out of the window.

In units that windows cannot open, you should tie a wet cloth in a triangle over your nose and mouth and remain close to the floor.

OTHER EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

If Mare St. Clair Condo-Hotel receives a bomb threat, oral or written, fire and police will be notified, and the entire property will be evacuated. The on-site personnel will activate the alarm systems and direct all guests/homeowners to safe areas away from the building.

If life and/or property are threatened by forces of nature, guests/homeowners should seek shelter on a lower level, interior space, away from glass windows and doors or leave the buildings as quickly as possible depending upon the situation. Staff will contact the appropriate authorities, if needed, and assist the guests/homeowners.

If life and property are subjected to terrorist attacks, guests/homeowners are instructed to leave the buildings as quickly as possible and seek shelter. Management will call 911 as soon as possible. Management is to be notified by security after guests/homeowners are in a safe location. If the Team Management is notified of an impending terrorist attack, the Management Team and the security staff will activate the alarm systems, call 911, and assist in evacuating the buildings.

By following the above instructions and becoming familiar with the buildings’ life safety systems and evacuation procedures, the risks to life and property will be minimized.

In the event a homeowner or guest is involved in a medical emergency, homeowners/guests are instructed to call the operator, security or 911 and provide detailed information concerning the emergency as well as the exact address of the property. Homeowners/guests who have a medical condition that could require immediate medical attention, such as EMT and ambulance service, we ask you to please inform the Management Team office of the health condition and medical attention that may be required. The Management should also be made aware of whom to contact in case of emergency.
