Fire Emergency

Emergency response procedures in case of fire or explosion are divided into several categories. The risk posed by fire on campus is considered to be very high, and regular fire drills are thus considered to be an essential part of emergency preparedness. The Makana Municipality Fire and Rescue Services runs elementary fire fighting courses and works closely with the University to ensure that fire safety is given high priority. In the event of a fire, the first point of contact is the CPU.

CALL CPU IMMEDIATELY!

On campus: dial 8999

Off campus: dial 046-603.8999
