Fire Safety

Implementation of Evacuation Chairs Across Campus

Through continuous fire safety improvement the University have now installed 25 evacuation chairs across our campuses, with a further 17 chairs on order. This provision will provide security and fire wardens alike with the skills and resources to ensure we can evacuate all our students and staff from our buildings in event of fire.

Heads of Departments will be required to ensure they have suitably trained fire wardens, or other nominated staff to use the evacuation chair. Find out more about evacuation chair training and use.

The more prepared we all are for the event of fire, the more effective our response will be.
