Emergency Evacuation


Every Student Halls of Residence building has fire alarm notification systems for emergency evacuation. The system will sound fire alarm bells supplemented by red flashing lights and announcements about the situation. At all times, when the alarm system sounds and/or voice command for evacuation is activated everyone must leave the building and move to a safe location.
