UHC has a full time Security Department designed to provide a reasonable and appropriate degree of security for its patients, visitors and staff. In the event that security services are needed, please dial "0" from any in-house telephone and request Security.
United Hospital Center's buildings are protected throughout with an Automatic Fire Sprinkler System, an Automatic Fire Alarm system and Smoke Tight Compartments which are designed to protect occupants in place, without the need to evacuate. In the event of a fire alarm, staff members will shut all patient room doors until the source of the alarm is identified, and the alarm is cleared by facility personnel or the Bridgeport Fire Department. During the alarm, all patients and visitors should stay in their rooms and await instructions from the hospital staff. In the unlikely event that patients and visitors need to be evacuated, the staff will relocate occupants into another smoke compartment.
