In case of emergency

If you hear the fire alarm, evacuate the building quickly by the nearest Fire Exit. These are situated on all floors and clearly sign posted. Treat all activations of the fire alarm as actual fire events. Do not collect belongings or use the lifts.

The system is automatic and will raise the alarm at the Fire Service and University Security Office. If you notice smoke or flames at any time then use one of the red 'break glass' units to activate the system and evacuate the building.

If you are unable to use the stairwell, then you should remain in one of the Refuge Areas and await assistance. There is an intercom in each Refuge Area with direct contact to the Security Office.

Do not re-enter the building until you are told it is safe to do so. Do not go back anywhere in the building to collect any items that may have been left behind.

If you are involved in an accident then you should, if able, make your way to the Reception Desk where treatment can be arranged. All accidents or near misses should be reported to the Reception Desk so that appropriate action can be taken.
