Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEPS) Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEPS)

The University provides safe and effective evacuation arrangements to all staff, students and visitors within its buildings.

Where individuals have any disability, which may cause them difficulty in hearing an alarm, responding in an evacuation or moving along any fire escape route, then a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) will need to be put in place.

The aim of a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) is to provide people who cannot get themselves out of a building unaided during an emergency situation, with a managed arrangement to evacuate the building.  In particular this will be the case for persons who are unable to use fire escape staircases.

If you need a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) to access an area of a university building, contact either:

- the Fire Safety Officer, University Safety Services on who has responsibility for developing and reviewing all PEEPs


- the member of staff responsible for organising the event or activity you will be attending
