Campus chief wardens are identified by a white helmet
Building Wardens take charge of fire alarms and incidents within a building.
For individual building incidents, such as fire alarms and other incidents contained to the building, attending personnel may be identified as follows. Building wardens are to ensure, as far as practicable, the safety and if required the orderly evacuation of staff, students and visitors. Wardens are not to physically combat emergencies and are not expected to place themselves in danger.
Building wardens are encouraged to speak with staff in their area of responsibility to ensure all are aware of the building exit routes and closest assembly area to use should there be a need for an evacuation.
Note: While every effort is made by all emergency staff to collect and don their identifying apparel in an emergency, there may be occasions when this will not be possible. A lack of visible identification does not imply their roles and responsibilities for your safety is nullified. Please follow the instructions of any staff member who verbally identifies themselves as emergency management staff for a building or campus.
All University Emergency Management Team or Emergency Control Organisation members are protected under the terms of the University's General Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance policies whilst undertaking their duties. These policies apply to all University staff provided they act within the scope of their duties and training.
