Details of how to report a fire or faulty/missing fire equipment.
All fires, and injuries caused by fires, which occur on the University estate must be reported to the Fire Safety Unit as soon as practicable, if not immediately, as part of the University Emergency Procedures.
University Security are usually informed of all fire alarm activations and report their findings on an internal form to the University Fire Safety Adviser. Where "Fire" is reported by the occupiers, Security duly inform the University Fire Safety Adviser who will attend as required.
When occupiers tackle a small fire without alerting security on operating the fire alarm they must inform the UFSA by email as soon as possible giving details of the incident. On every occasion of a fire, an investigation will be carried out by FSU personnel and the Fire and Rescue Service to ensure University procedures are correct.
On every occasion of fire, personnel should also comply with University Emergency Procedures and complete the online Fire Reporting form.
This is the same as the Accident and Incident online reporting form.
The Accident, Incident and Dangerous Occurences form which can be completed online and submitted electronically.
