Level Egress:  In an emergency evacuation the lifts must not be used.   Turn right out of 1.50 to the refuge point.  The refuge point is sign posted. When you reach the refuge point, you must use the phone which will connect to security when the handset is lifted.  Inform security of your location and that you require assistance.  Security will communicate information to you in relation to what is happening and reassure you.  You should remain in the refuge area until advised otherwise or someone comes to your assistance.  Refuge points are located such as to provide a safe area for at least 30 minutes in the event of a real fire.
