The fire and emergency evacuation policy and procedures at Ulster University are well established, however the new Belfast campus is very different from our existing estate, so consideration as to how and when buildings will be evacuated is detailed.

The fire evacuation procedures will be reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis as the new Belfast project progresses.

Fire Alarm Tests

Keeping in line with UU’s fire safety procedures, the fire detection and alarms system will be tested every Wednesday at 13:10 and 17:55.

During the test the alarm will sound for a short period of around 10-15 seconds. Any continuous sounding of the alarm is not a test and should be treated as a genuine alarm.
