What is an emergency?
An emergency event which has the potential to seriously affect the University could occur from any of the following circumstances. This is not a definitive list and our emergency procedures have been developed with the expectation of having to respond to something new:
- Aggression (Physical/Verbal)
- Trapped in Elevator
- Fire and Evacuation Procedures
- Armed Hold-Up/Robbery
- Medical Emergency
- Suspect Parcel
- Suspicious Activity/Unauthorised Visitor or Media
- Flooding/Storm/Gale Force Wind
- Sexual Assault
- Gas Leak
- Power Outage
- Bomb Threat
- Hazardous Materials Alert
See also the emergency procedures page of this website which gives additional information contained in our Flip Charts.
If the above means of communication are disrupted, information will be conveyed to staff and students via whatever means are available and best suit the situation.
