March Trial Evacuations

From Monday 22 March to Wednesday 31 March there will be trial evacuations running for all buildings within the Ilam and Dovedale campuses.

Trial evacuations are important as they are an opportunity to practice evacuation procedures and figure out any areas of concern. It allows the UC community to be prepared for when it is a real emergency evacuation.

If you are in a building during a trial evacuation, please follow the standard evacuation procedures. You can find out more here>
