Evacuating disabled people

Guidance for the emergency evacuation of disabled people from University buildings.

For the purposes of this section, disabled people will include anyone with either a mobility or sensory impairment who requires assistance to evacuate the building.

Fire evacuation for disabled people

We have produced a fire evacuation plan for any people on University premises who are classed as disabled for the purposes of evacuation.

Personal emergency action plans (PEAPs)

PEEPs are advance plans for those who may need assistance or special arrangements during an emergency evacuation.
