FIRE EVACUATION PROCEDURES
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Each Fire Marshall (FM) is responsible for evacuating the area they are working
in. Read these procedures carefully and remember that you may be responsible
for clearing more than one area.
For this reason, you may direct guests to the nearest accessible fire exit but you
do not necessarily have to leave the building with them.
All fire exit routes are clearly marked with “running man” signs which guests can
follow. Always double check that all your areas of responsibility are completely
clear of visitors before leaving the building and reporting to the Duty Manager
(DM).
There is 1 Fire Refuge Location which is at the carpark area beyond the Church
House.
Once all guests have been evacuated, the Fire Marshalls will advise the Duty
Manager (DM) that all Fire Marshalls and guests are out of the building.
Fire Marshalls should then stay with the guests they have evacuated,
assuring them that they will be able to return to the building as soon as
the fire brigade has given us the all clear.
Each area within the building generally has two exits – make yourself familiar
with them and where they lead to, bearing in mind that you may have to use
them in limited visibility, and that the nearest exit may not always be useable in
the event of a real fire.
Remember to remain calm at all times. If anyone refuses to leave the
building, make a mental note of where they are and inform the Duty
Manager. The fire brigade will deal with this situation.
General Notes
When the fire alarm sounds (an intermittent siren and flashing red lights)
everyone must stop what they are doing and make their way to the nearest fire
exit. You are advised NOT to stop to gather personal belongings etc. Stewards /
Café Staff / Organisations should inform the public that a fire evacuation is in
process. Direct the public quickly and as calmly as possible to the nearest exit

remembering that in the event of a fire the nearest exit may not always be
accessible. Go to the Fire Refuge Point.
As the alarm is sounding, the Duty Manager will make his/her way to the main
entrance area and put on the orange hi-visibility waistcoat, they will then
coordinate the evacuation of the Fire Marshalls as well as public from the
building.
The Fire Marshalls for each designated area are responsible for making sure that
their area is cleared as well as making sure the DM is notified of this. It is also
the responsibility of each Fire Marshal to stay with the group they evacuate and
to escort them back into the building when the all clear is given.
