					         Fire Procedure and Emergency Evacuation
1. IF YOU DISCOVER A FIRE, BREAK THE GLASS OF THE NEAREST FIRE
   ALARM.

2. Fire alarm

   The buildings are fitted with an alarm system. This means that a full continuous
   alarm will sound only in the area where the alarm has been pressed. For the
   purpose of the alarm the site is divided into areas:
       Fisher Hall
       Sports Hall/Gym/Swimming pool/Fitness Suite
       Pavilion
       Middle school
       Lower school

   When the alarm is sounding the procedure is as follows:
   If the full continuous alarm sounds please evacuate the building immediately by
   the nearest exit and proceed to the designated assembly point.

3. Extinguishers

   These are placed throughout the buildings but are for first stage fire fighting only.
   Duty staff may use these at their own discretion, but should bear in mind that the
   main task is to ensure that the building is completely evacuated. The fire service
   will pt out the fire.

4. Evacuation and assembly points

   Please ensure you are familiar with the plan provided and that you know the
   whereabouts of the assembly points for each building.
   Customers and staff should only re-enter the building when the fire service has
   declared the area safe.
