All Rhodes University personnel, staff and students, have the following general responsibilities in the event of an emergency:
- Always carry your Wallet Card (prepared by the Communications and Marketing Division) containing concise information on what to do in an emergency.
- Review simple set of standing instructions issued to members of the wider University community outlining What to do in an Emergency (see Appendices – A).
- Be familiar with specific information regarding safety in your building, especially building location of fire alarm system devices, alarms, and evacuation routes from your workstation.
Note: Copies of a building’s emergency evacuation procedures, including a diagram of the building evacuation routes, should be visible in all areas/floors of each building to ensure that occupants can evacuate as quickly and safely as possible in the event of a fire. This is the responsibility of managers / heads, in collaboration with their Building Emergency Coordinators.
- Always bear in mind that the safety of people should be your first consideration; the safety of the building and its contents is secondary.
