ECU is committed to, and places the highest priority on safe emergency procedures for all staff, students and visitors.  Emergency procedures have been formulated to meet the requirements of Australian Standard AS3745-2010 – Planning for Emergencies in Facilities. All personnel responsible for managing the emergency process are trained in accordance with the relevant standard.

Security and Traffic Services on each campus manages the implementation of these practices and procedures. Evacuation exercises are conducted annually so that ECU complies with current legislation and to ensure that staff and students are familiar with the emergency procedures.

In the event of an emergency on campus, the Chief Warden is responsible for coordinating the initial response until the arrival of professional emergency support agencies.  Our designated Chief Wardens are Security and Traffic Services who are supported by the ECU Emergency Response Team, consisting of Building and Area Wardens and other designated personnel.

Staff, students and visitors should:

  • make themselves aware of these emergency guidelines;
  • be aware of Emergency Evacuation Assembly Zones; and
  • be aware of the most direct means of exiting their current location.

Staff conducting lectures or classes at the time of an emergency are responsible for the evacuation of students under their control – refer to the Emergency Evacuation Management Plan for your campus.

In the event of an emergency out of normal hours (8.00am-5.00pm) contact Security and Traffic Services on + 61 8 6304 3333 (3333 from internal phones).
