Fire and Evacuation Procedure

Fire and Evacuation Procedure


  1. All visitors to the building are requested to sign in and out at reception, so that in the event of a fire or other emergency, the Safety and Fire Prevention Office (Principle or Vice Principle or Senior Administrator) can ensure that all those on the premises are evacuated safely.
  2. It is the responsibility of all staff to ensure that their visitors are accompanied at all times while in the building and to escort their visitors to the assembly point in an emergency situation.
  3. Owners of vehicles parked in the grounds should leave their car registration number with the receptionist.
  4. Users of the facilities should maintain a register of attendees where possible.
  5. Anyone detecting a fire should activate the alarm immediately by breaking the glass on the nearest red fire alarm box, and inform reception who will call the emergency services.
  6. In the event of a fire or emergency you should leave the building by the route advised by the Academy Staff and proceed to the assembly point in the car park towards Coleridge Road. You are asked to proceed straight to this assembly point and wait there for further instructions. The Safety Officer and the Receptionist will be at the assembly point to check that all those signed in have in fact left the building.  It is therefore imperative that you go to the assembly point, STAY THERE and await further instructions.
  7. The Academy Staff will assist in directing people out of the building by the nearest safe exit in the event of fire and check that everyone is aware of the emergency.  It is imperative that their instructions are followed.  In the absence of staff the hirer will take this role as they are briefed at the time of hiring.
  8. In the event of an emergency or fire leave quickly – do not push or run – do not re-enter the building until the all clear has been given by the Fire Chief or other authorised person.
  9. Persons with a mobility difficulty should be assisted by Academy Staff and only if there is no staff then other able bodied people may help.
  10. Provided there is no risk of personal danger, fire can be attacked with fire extinguishers provided. Fire extinguishers should only be used by those who are fully equipped with the knowledge of how to operate them and who can differentiate between the various types and uses of fire extinguisher.
  11. Emergency first aid can be administered by the Academy First Aiders.
  12. First aid supplies are located in the Reception Area and the First Aid Room.
