Fire Safety

London Churchill College is dedicated to ensuring the safety of students, staff, and visitors within its premises. Workplace fire safety is crucial for the safety of both staff, students, and visitors of the College. It is the duty of every individual within the College to ensure their own safety by responding promptly to any fire alarm activation and avoid activities that may result in a fire outbreak, as maintaining high fire safety standards is a shared responsibility for individuals.

Action in the Event of a Fire

  • Sound the Alarm to warn others;
  • Activate the closest manual call point (if available);
  • Call the fire service (999) and report the location of the fire;
  • Only try to intervene in fighting the fire if you have received proper training to do so whilst ensuring your safety and that of others;
  • Exit the building by the nearest available exit using the stairs and report to the assembly point;
  • Only go back to the building after it is declared safe by Fire Marshals and you are instructed to return.

Role of the Fire Marshall in the Event of a Fire

  • Help with the evacuation process; ensure to inspect disabled persons’ offices/areas to ensure no one has been left behind;
  • Conduct a thorough check of assigned area. The Fire Marshall should be the last person to exit the area;
  • Attempt to fight fire if trained to do so before the Fire service arrives;
  • Guiding all individuals to the fire assembly point and organising the roll call in conjunction with the responsible officer of the assembly point;
  • Coordinate with fire and rescue service.

Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP)

A Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) outlines procedures for safely evacuating individuals who may have difficulty responding to a fire alarm or exiting abuilding independently during an emergency. Every PEEP should be tailored to each person’s specific needs, addressing their challenges, identifying how they can be safely assisted to evacuate, and determining the necessary equipment for the evacuation process.

It’s crucial to complete PEEPs as early as possible to prioritise the safety of disabled individuals within the College.

The Fire Marshall and Site Manager are tasked with drafting the PEEP for each building the student will visit. They are responsible for overseeing the process, creating the PEEP, and defining clear lines of responsibility.
