What to do in an emergency

What to do in an earthquake or other emergency.

Accessible routes

In an emergency leave the building through an emergency exit route – these routes are identified by green and white exit signage.

Smoke and fire control doors leading to the stairwells must not be kept open by methods other than specifically installed electronic hold open devices which are designed to release on a fire alarm activation. Do not use lifts in the event of an emergency or fire alarm. Use the stairs.

Floor and Building (Fire) Wardens

All University buildings have building and floor wardens who are trained in evacuating people in an emergency. Floor wardens wear bright yellow vests and buildings wardens wear bright orange vests.
