Hotel employees: What are you asked to do in the event of a fire?
February 19, 2014 9:12 PM Subscribe
Have you or someone you know ever worked in a hotel? Or are you a firefighter? If so, I am studying fire safety and would like to know what (if anything) hotel employees are trained to do in the event of a fire?

If the fire alarm goes off, do hotel employees go room to room trying to wake people up? Do they have a list of guests and attempt a head count in the parking lot? Do they report to fire fighters about which rooms might be occupied? Or which rooms house ADA guests? I realize this is a very broad question, but if you have ever worked in a hotel, I'd appreciate hearing what you were instructed to do. I know answers might vary widely.
I plan to make some calls, but I'd like a little background so I can ask smarter questions.
