Fire Safety & Evacuation Preparedness

BE PREPARED! Many of you have already received a hard-copy of our newly printed Evacuation Guide which includes a brightly colored door hanger. The door hanger would be placed on the outside of your cabin door during an emergency so that authorities know that you have evacuated.

Please take a few minutes to review it with your family. We encourage you to print it out and put it in a visible place in your cabin so that it is readily available during an emergency.  

If you do not have a printed version for your cabin, email and they can arrange to get you one while supplies last (or you can download it the from the link above.)
