Title: Fire Safety Training

Fire Safety Training
What if there is a fire?
  • All study staff who will be working on the floor
    must know the fire plan. This ensures subject
    safety. It is also a JCAHO requirement.

Disaster Responsibilities
  • As an employee of Massachusetts General Hospital,
    you are considered a disaster worker for the city
    of Boston. In a fire or any other disaster, you
    must help in any way you can.
  • In a disaster, you may not leave the hospital
    until dismissed by your supervisor.

Fire Plan
  • If you see a fire, yell Code Red and the room
    number. Remove all subjects from the room of the
    fire and close the door.
  • Any employee hearing Code Red should pull the
    nearest fire pull station.
  • If the alarm does not sound, call Security at

Where are the fire pull stations?
  • At the far end of each wing
  • Next to the service elevator
  • Next to the main elevator bank

What does the alarm sound like?
  • The alarm sound specific to White 13 is !!! !
    !!! (3, 1, 3)

What is Protect in Place?
  • The GCRC follows the Protect in Place method
    during a fire. This method is described below
  • First, remove all subjects from the room of the
    fire. Then, close the doors to all other patient
    rooms and all corridor doors.

Fire Extinguisher
  • Bring a fire extinguisher to the location of the
  • Operate the extinguisher using the pass method.
  • Pull the safety pin
  • Aim at the base of the fire
  • Squeeze the trigger
  • Sweep back and forth

Where are the fire extinguishers?
  • At the far end of each wing
  • Next to the service elevator
  • Next to the main elevator bank
  • Note These are the same locations as the
    fire pull stations.

What do I need to report?
  • At all times, you must know where your subjects
    are, their condition and their mobility level.

What about medical gas?
  • Only a clinician or emergency personnel can shut
    off medical gas.
  • However, everyone must be able to point out the
    medical gas shut-off valves if necessary.
  • The shut-off valves are on the wall between the
    shower and the tub room.

What else do I do?
  • If you have any medical records at the time of
    the fire, secure them in the nearest file
  • Clear the corridors by moving non-essential
    equipment into patient and exam rooms.

Where do I go?
  • Meet at the elevator lobby to await orders.
  • You may not leave the unit unless an evacuation
    is ordered.

When do I evacuate?
  • Orders for a horizontal evacuation will be given
    by either the Nurse Manager, resource nurse,
    Clinical Nurse Specialist, Operations
    Coordinator, Buildings Grounds, or emergency
  • Orders for a vertical evacuation will be given by
    either the President of MGH or the Boston Fire

What types of evacuations are there?
To Bigelow 13 and Ellison/Blake 13
  • Horizontal evacuation move across to either
    Bigelow 13 or Ellison/Blake 13.
  • Vertical evacuation move downstairs to White 12
    or White 11. Do not use the elevator.

How do I evacuate?
  • Be ready to assist in moving subjects (even those
    who are not your own) if an evacuation order is
  • If any of your subjects are able, ask them to
    assist those who cannot evacuate on their own.

What else do I need to know?
  • If asked, you must be able to furnish the MSDS
    binder to emergency personnel. This is located
    on the wall next to the study staff computers.
  • The binder is bright yellow, with red lettering.

What about a clothing fire?
  • Follow Stop, Drop, and Roll.
  • Wrap the person in a blanket before rolling.
