Emergency exercise on campus – Friday 28 August

On Friday 28 August UC will host an emergency exercise involving Police and other emergency services. Their presence on campus on the day should be no cause for alarm.

The exercise will not be particularly visible, but will involve specialist police teams and other emergency services, and a number of UC staff including the Senior Management Team. It will focus on two areas of campus – the Emergency Operations Centre and the Central Lecture Theatre block. Please avoid these areas on the day of the exercise.

UC Security are contributing substantially to the exercise which will mean a reduced level of service at the UC security office on the day of the exercise and issue of Canterbury cards and parking permits will be suspended for the day.

Should a serious incident occur on campus on the day of the exercise, there are measures in place to halt the exercise and attend to that incident, so should security be required, please don’t hesitate to call 6111.
