Fire Evacuation

In the case of a fire alarm, you are expected to leave the Humanities building via the nearest staircase quickly and quietly. The congregation area for the Humanities Building is Car Park 8, the multi-storey carpark next to the Sports Centre. To fail to evacuate the building during any fire alarm may lead to disciplinary action.

If you have any disability that may impede your evacuation from the department you should ask the Department’s Health and Safety Officer or the Department Administrator, in consultation with your Personal Tutor, to prepare a personalised evacuation plan for you. There are also two safety stations in the stair wells where you can seek refuge until help arrives. The contact numbers for the University’s Security Office are posted at these points.

In the event that you see a fire, raise the alarm as quickly as possible and leave the area for a safe place.
