Current building evacuation plans will be on display in your training area location. Familiarise yourself with them and your closest fire exit in the event of an emergency. All training facilitators will cover off on our four stages of evacuation (below) in your induction.
People in the immediate danger area are to be evacuated to a place of safety. When the area has been evacuated, doors should be closed to localise the fire.
Should the emergency necessitate complete evacuation of the building, everyone will assemble at the defined assembly point and remain there until otherwise directed.
Your warden will direct you to the primary assembly area.
Your training facilitator will collect the latest attendance list and the visitor register and conduct a roll call to confirm with the fire warden that all persons are accounted for. Any missing persons are to be reported to the attending fire wardens.

All training rooms are air conditioned. To achieve optimum benefit, please ensure doors to the training rooms are kept closed at all times.
