Refuge points are sign posted. When at the refuge point, you must use the phone to communicate with security. The phone will go straight through to security when you pick up the receiver. Inform security of your location (this is written on the sign by the phone) 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. 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. Staff must contact their School / Division Disability Contact or their manager to arrange a PEEP.
