DO NOT PANIC! At all times during an emergency follow the instructions of the Emergency Guides.

  1. If the evacuation alarm sounds or if instructed to do so by an Emergency Guide, leave the building using the nearest and safest exit route (see Evacuation Plans below). All doors should be closed (but not locked) on leaving.
  2. If possible take your personal belongings (such as handbags and briefcases) with you when you leave. Do NOT return to collect belongings.
  3. In the case of a fire, do not use the lifts.
  4. Assist any person with a disability or reduced mobility to leave the building. Use evacuation chairs (see below) to carry people down the stairs.
  5. Walk quickly and calmly to the designated assembly area (see below) for your building or as advised by an Emergency Guide or Fire and Rescue Service personnel.
  6. Remain at the assembly area (in groups) until instructed to leave by the TSO or Fire and Rescue Service personnel.
  7. Do not re-enter the building until informed that it is safe to do so by the TSO or Fire and Rescue Service personnel.

Evacuation Alarm

In the event of a fire, raise the alarm by manually triggering it using the manual audible alarm system.  

The alarm will automatically be triggered when two different detectors are triggered. If only one detector is triggered, the alarm will not sound and manual procedure must be taken.
