Annual evacuation drills

Posted by rmt22 at Sep 28, 2017 08:32 AM |
Please be aware that building evacuation drills will take place during the first few weeks of term.

We ask for your full co-operation during the evacuation. We recognise that these drills may interrupt your schedule and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

During the drill, you may hear alarm bells and/or an announcement to evacuate.

Please adhere to the following when the alarm sounds:

  • Please get yourself out of the building. If you need help please notify a member of staff
  • Follow any directions given to you by your lecturer or member of University staff and proceed to the nearest safe evacuation exit
  • Fire Wardens [wearing hi-viz tabards] will ‘sweep’ areas of the building to support the evacuation process
  • Once outside, please proceed to Emergency Assembly Area and wait there until you receive further instructions
  • When returning to the building please take your time and co-operate with staff marshalling the process

Thank you for your co-operation. If you have questions, contact Safety Services at
