Emergency Exits & MAG Locks

In some buildings, the exits have been equipped with special locking hardware commonly referred to as "mag-locks".

In the event of a fire alarm activating, all doors equipped with mag-locks will automatically unlock allowing egress from the building. Should you encounter a fire situation, and need to exit the building immediately, you should activate the pull station next to the exit. This will activate the fire alarm system notifying all employees, and will release the mag-lock to allow egress. As well, the fire department will be notified at once.
