Reporting a sexual assault
The "Escape from UTS" video has been produced by Facilities Management is designed to show students and staff how to evacuate University buildings in the event of a fire or other emergency.
If there’s a fire
- the smoke detectors activate the evacuation system and
- Fire & Rescue NSW is called automatically.
What to do in an evacuation
- Listen for the evacuation alarm to sound. It consists of two tones:
- Stand-by-and-prepare-to-evacuate tone – a Beep...Beep...Beep... sound
- Evacuate tone – a Whoop...Whoop...Whoop... sound accompanied by a voice message advising evacuation of the building.
- Do not attempt to combat a fire – leave it to professionally trained personnel.
- Staff members, please take students or visitors with you during an evacuation of the building.
- Assist any person with a disability.
- Take only your immediate belongings – do not waste time!
- Evacuate the building via the fire stairs or signed exits. Do not use lifts.
- Follow directions from security officers or fire wardens.
- Move quickly but do not run.
- Do not return to the building until the 'all clear' is given – normally be advised by the security officer on duty on the advice of the emergency services personnel in attendance.

How wardens assist in an emergency
A warden would normally be assigned to assist a mobility-impaired person during an emergency. The warden, who will already be familiar with the person’s PEEP, will carry out the procedures in accordance with the PEEP.
In some instances, during an evacuation of the building, the mobility-impaired person, and the designated warden, will remain on their floor inside the fire escape and wait for Emergency Services to assist them.
For this reason, the Chief Warden, supervisors, faculty and unit administration and the Emergency Manager need to be aware of the special needs of people within their office/building. Emergency Services must also be made aware of special circumstances so that they are better prepared to deal with the situation. For this reason, at a minimum, the PEEP should be kept with the wardens designated to assist and by the Fire Indicator Panel with the Chief Warden.
