Fire and Emergency Procedure  

All employees and students have a responsibility to familiarise themselves with the following information regarding fire safety. Employees and students must pay attention to the location of fire exits, fire extinguishers, the fire alarm and assembly points in their building. Fire and emergency drills are held in the College on a regular basis in order to familiarise employees and students with an emergency and the procedures to be followed during evacuation.

Mary Immaculate College has developed fire and emergency plans to ensure that all buildings are evacuated in an orderly and controlled manner during an emergency situation thereby minimising potential injury to employees, students, visitors, and contractors.

Emergency Evacuation Chairs

Evacuation chairs have been installed in a number of buildings to assist persons to evacuate quickly and safely in the event of an emergency. In the event of an evacuation, all security doors automatically release. Persons such as wheelchair users can be evacuated using Evacuation chairs (by consent) which are located in the main buildings. 

There are currently fifteen employees trained in the use of the Evacuation Chairs to assist persons in an appropriate and sensitive manner. Evacuation chairs can provide a fast, safe, reliable means of evacuation. They can also provide people with walking disabilities an equal opportunity for escape in an emergency.
