Fire safety/evacuation

In case of an emergency evacuation

Can you leave the building unaided in the event of an emergency evacuation?

  • Yes - Leave by the nearest available exit and make your way to the Assembly Point
  • No - Make your way to your nearest available Refuge Point. Use the communication point to contact Operations Division to tell them where you are, following the instruction notice on the wall.

If you are informed that the evacuation is a real emergency, try to remain calm and await further instructions. This may involve evacuation from the Refuge by trained members of the Operations Team by evacuation chair.

Remember that throughout the emergency you can keep in constant contact with Operations via the Communications point.

If you are informed that the evacuation is a non-emergency situation ie. false alarm, remain where you are and await further instructions from Operations Division staff.
