Upon arrival, please inform our Leisure Team should you require any support or assistance in evacuating the facilities in an emergency. Our Extended Services Manager, will be happy to devise and implement a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan for you.
We do not have any Fire/Evacuation drills planned during your visit. Should the fire alarm sound (one continuous siren) please exit the building through the nearest fire escape exit and make your way to the Assembly Point situated on the floodlit astroturf, to the rear of the building. Please take the time to read the Fire Action drill on show around the facility.
For your own safety, your inductor will show you the location of all of the fire exits. Should you have any further queries please do not hesitate to ask. Please DO NOT use the lift.
All accident and/or incident details are reportable to our Extended Services Manager, along with any First Aid treatment administered. Our First Aid equipment is located in the Sports Office next to the Sports Hall and Gymnasium, but please inform the Leisure Team should this room need to be used.
