Egress via stairs: There is a fire exit door at the front of the lecture theatre. Alternatively use the stairs outside the lecture theatre to exit the building.
Level Egress: In an emergency evacuation the lifts must not be used. The stair lift platforms can be used to exit the theatre to get to the refuge point. The refuge point is located outside the Prince Phillip lecture theatre, opposite the lift. 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.
In the event of a power failure, the stair lift platforms have a battery and manual back-up which allow the lift to be operated. The manual device is kept with security at reception. There is a telephone at an accessible height at the back of the theatre to contact security if assistance is required to operate the platform lifts. Dial 76708 for reception.
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.
