Should you have mobility issues and are not registered with DASS, you will be required to inform Student Support or your Programme Administrator..  A PEEP (personal emergency evacuation plan) will be put in place which will assist you in exiting the building safely, in the event of an emergency evacuation. 

If for any reason you will need help to leave any building in the event of an emergency, you should inform your Programme Administrator and Alliance MBS's Health and Safety Adviser, Joann Slater, of this fact:

Tel. 275 6422 or internal 56422

The fire alarms are tested in the AMBS building every Wednesday at 13.20. If you hear an alarm at any other time you must leave the building immediately. On no account use lifts in an emergency. If you are on the ground floor, make your way out  of the building via the nearest available route.  Follow the green directional fire exit signage. Once outside you must move as far away from the building as possible so as not to obstruct the emergency services and for your own safety. Fire Marshals will be on hand to direct you to the assembly point.

On discovering a fire, to raise the alarm please press the nearest  red fire alarm activation panel, then leave the building as quickly as possible.

Fire extinguishers are situated throughout the building, The wider one is foam filled and is to be used on paper fires. The thinner one is carbon dioxide filled and is for use on electrical equipment. Never put water on electrical equipment.

You will be using many of the university buildings over the course of your programme. You must, therefore, familiarise yourself with the University of Manchester fire alarm procedures and emergency evacuation points by consulting the signs displayed in each building you use.
