In an emergency evacuation the lifts must not be used. For anyone unable to safely evacuate using the stairs, there are refuge points (photograph above) located on every upper floor, in the stair wells opposite the lifts. Refuge points are sign posted. When at the refuge point, you must use the intercom to inform the contact of your location and that you require assistance. You should remain in the refuge area until advised otherwise or someone comes to your assistance. The refuge points are located such as to provide a safe area for at least 30 minutes in the event of a real fire.
If you think you might require assistance in the event of an emergency evacuation, you must arrange a Personalised Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) as soon as possible. Students must contact their School Disability Contact to arrange a PEEP. Staff will need to contact their School / Division Disability Contact or their manager to arrange a PEEP. Please remember that it is your responsibility to inform the relevant person that you require a PEEP to be set up.
