Fire alarm testing - All Halls

By kroberts 26 Oct 2016

Please look up your current hall of residence and read the information that follows with regards to fire alarm testing.

 

Campus Halls:

 

Vine Court

The fire alarms in Vine Court are tested once a week on Wednesdays at approximately 10am. The alarm will sound for around 30 seconds and will then be switched off. We do not test the whole of Vine Court each week, this is done on a rota so you won’t hear the alarm very often during your stay.

If the alarm sounds in your area for longer than 30 seconds, it is not a test and you should leave the building and make your way to the evacuation point at Sydney jones Library. If the alarm does not sound in your area, you do not need to evacuate. If additional testing is required, we will notify you with the date and approximate time of this testing.

 

Melville Grove

The fire alarms in Melville Grove are tested once a week on Tuesday at approximately 10am. The alarm will sound for around 30 seconds and will then be switched off.
