Action to take on discovering a fire

  • Raise the alarm and summon the Fire and Rescue Service by striking the nearest red break-glass alarm point and call the University's Emergency number (3333) to report the location of the fire
  • Only use an appropriate fire extinguisher or fire blanket to control the fire if:
    • you have received appropriate training and feel confident to use one
    • the fire is small and looks containable
  • Once smoke starts to spread it is time to close the doors and to get out of the building after activating the alarm
