Give the alarm in case of fire or disorder.
(1) In case of fire, the sentry immediately calls; “Fire, Post Number____.” and gives the alarm or makes certain an alarm has been given. If possible, without endangering oneself or the performance of duties, the sentry extinguishes the fire. If not, the sentry directs the responding emergency services to the fire. The sentry notifies the guardhouse of all actions as soon as possible.
(2) In case of disorder, the sentry notifies the COG immediately. The sentry then takes proper corrective action. If the assistance of the guard is required, the sentry calls; “Corporal of the Guard, Post Number ____, Request Assistance.”
