How the fire alarm system works:

York Gate Campus is equipped with a two-stage fire alarm system. The first stage is a slow pulse alarm. This is an alert only. All activity is to cease while authorities investigate, but the building does not require evacuation. You should however, prepare yourself to evacuate by saving computer work etc. Await further instructions via the emergency speaker system (heard in the common areas).

The slow pulse alarm will either be cancelled, or a fast pulse alarm will sound. A fast pulse is a full evacuation alarm. Immediately evacuate the building by the nearest exit. Once outside, you will receive further instructions.

In case of fire: Activate the nearest fire alarm pull station and evacuate the building using the nearest exit.
