Campus Chief Wardens are identified by a white helmet
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. Wardens 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.
Building Wardens are identified by a red cap and lanyard with ID holder.
Note: While every effort is made by all emergency staff to collect and don their identifying apparel in an emergency there are occasions that this will not be possible, the lack of visible identification does not imply that 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.
