Fire Response - Main Campus

When the fire alarm sounds, everyone should stop work and immediately proceed to a designated assesmbly point, well clear of the building.

The evacuation response process is similar across all buildings in the main campus and is summarised below

Security Staff respond to fire alarms and investigate. Fire Wardens check that there is no one left in the building. The local Incident Response Team are designated persons from the occupying department(s), who assist the Security Officer in managing the incident and provide information to the Fire Service.
