Fire safety instructions

Important information about what to do in the event of a fire at the CCG.

In the event of a fire the alarm will operate as a continuous ringing sound. On hearing this, you must:

  • Evacuate the building immediately
  • Exit the building the same way you entered

If you find your exit blocked follow the standard fire exit signs which will show the shortest route. Where appropriate, please close doors behind you and assist anyone having difficulty.

Make your way to the Assembly Point at Car Park D. From Buildings 1 to 4 go to the junction at the top of Spencer Close and bear right. The car park is behind the garages on the right hand side.

The alarm may stop sounding before it is safe. You must not re-enter the building until instructed to do so.

If you believe you may have difficulty evacuating the building, please request a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) be put into place.

The CCG’s fire wardens are:

  • Grainne Stephenson – Building 1
  • Paul Stephenson – Building 1
  • Sharon Cooper – Building 2
  • Sue Dikmen – Building 2
  • Helen Biss – Building 3
  • Judy Hiscott – Building 4
  • Kate Brown – Building 4

Throughout the CCG buildings in Spencer Close there are electromagnetic door locks on fire exit routes. These are wired into the fire alarm system. When the alarm sounds power to the lock is cut so you can push the door and open it freely.

If power to the door lock doesn’t cut off when the alarm activates (and this can happen), these doors have an emergency door release located beside them. These are the ‘green boxes’. Press the glass on the green box to crack it, the door will then push open easily.

The green boxes are quite inconspicuous and the writing on them is very small. Please ensure you are familiar with the location of the green boxes.
