Evacuation Procedure

There are two alarm sounds. On hearing the first alarm, Wardens should check their areas for evidence of some problem or emergency, such as a fire, and alert staff that they may be required to evacuate, then standby for more information. Any problem or emergency should be reported to the Chief Warden using the Red Phone on each level.

In the event of a problem, either the Chief Warden initiates the second (evacuation) alarm, or the system may automatically go into the second tone due the the severity of the situation. It is only on the second alarm that Area Wardens should start clearing their areas, then report back to the Chief Warden using the Red Phone for that area.

Please consult the Maps posted in each building for evacuation routes and assembly points.
