Emergency evacuation procedures

The Evacuation alarm has two distinct tones:

The first tone called the ALERT tone (Beep Beep sound), which is used to alert the occupants of the building to prepare for an evacuation and to mobilise the evacuation personnel in the building. Upon hearing this alarm turn off any equipment, pack up your personal belongings and wait for the evacuation alarm or further instructions.

The second tone is called the EVACUATION tone (Whoop Whoop sound and a recorded voice asking you to evacuate the building). Upon hearing this alarm you MUST EVACUATE the building in an orderly fashion via the nearest fire stairs or exit (DO NOT USE THE LIFT!) and meet at the Evacuation Assembly Area outside the southern entrance to the Old Main Building (i.e. Anzac Parade side, Village Green). Follow the instructions of the Fire Wardens who will coordinate evacuation.

Emergency evacuation drills are scheduled in the OMB on a regular base. When these occur it is imperative that all persons obey the directions of the Fire Wardens, evacuate the building and move to Village Green.
