Action on discovering a fire:

If you discover a fire, raise the alarm immediately.  The fire alarm can be activated by breaking a break glass unit (red square box with glass panel). 

To break use your thumb to apply pressure on the black dot in the centre panel of the unit.

On hearing the fire alarm all building users must:

  • Ensure that you turn off any equipment that you are using e.g. office equipment, lights etc.

  • Evacuate the building by the nearest exit route.
  • Close all doors after you.

  • Assist in the evacuation of disabled personnel, if necessary.

  • Proceed to the assembly point.

  • Do not go upstairs for any reason.

  • Do not go to lockers/workstations etc to collect personal belongings.

  • Do not use the lift.

  • Do not re-enter the building until the “all-clear” has been given either by the evacuation control team or the fire brigade officer in charge.

If you need to contact the emergency services follow the advice below:

Dialling from WIT landline: Dial (9)-999 or (9)-112. (Please note you need to dial “9” first to get an outside line).

Dialling from non-WIT landline or from mobile phone: Dial 999 or 112

When connected:

1. Ask for the correct service i.e. Fire, Ambulance, Gardai and give the following information:

  • Your name
  • Telephone number
  • Campus location
  • Exact location on campus
  • Type of incident
  • Type of injury (if known)

2. Don’t hang up until the operator clears the line

After you contact the Emergency Services please contact the porter on duty or the security office (087-9400888) and advise them of the situation.
