Invacuation siren - are you ready?

Should a situation (such as a leak of dangerous chemicals) arise which results in the need to warn everyone on campus to remain inside, it is essential that we all know how to act.

When we carried out an invacuation exercise a year ago, many people were still unaware of what to do when the siren sounds.

A practice invacuation is planned for the very near future so please make sure you know what to do.

If you are outside when the siren sounds please also advise others (such as visitors) of the correct course of action as you would in a real life situation.

A short training module was created last year which provides you with the essential information. This is available on Moodle via the search facility or can be accessed by the Staying Safe and Well website and forms a crucial part of ensuring that you remain safe whilst at the University.

If accessing directly via Moodle:

  • Sign in using your username and password
  • Search for Fire Safety Awareness
  • Search for Health & Safety Training and then click on Invacuation

If you have any queries about the module, or accessing them, please contact Mark Burton.
