On hearing the alarm signal evacuate in an orderly manner to the nearest and safest exit while obeying the instructions of the Building and Area Wardens. If it is possible and safe take your personal belongings with you when you leave. If you can’t, do not return to get your belongings unless authorised by Wardens or Fire and Emergency Services personnel.

In the case of an emergency evacuation it is important to remain calm. Walk calmly quickly to the designated assembly area or as advised by a Warden or Fire and Emergency Services personnel and await further instruction.
