When the sound of the fire alarm rings throughout the campus halls early in the morning, it’s almost to be expected that it will take a good ten or minutes for someone to saunter over. The security are lovely, but the issue is they cannot run from Lomas Street to North Road and vice versa, in a ,setter of moments, and that’s how long it should take for the alarm to be dealt with. I propose that nominated fire staff are readily available on all sites at all times, as there has been one occasion where nobody official knew the fire alarm was going off, and we were stood outside in the cold waiting. I had to call Accommodation services who made their way over promptly. If there was an actual fire, this would have meant that the building would’ve burned down, along with our stuff and anyone left inside. In two minutes, a fire can be life threatening. In 5, an entire residence could be engulfed in flames. We are expected to follow every single rule or get fined. It is important that we get the safety we pay to be here for.
