A Fire Evacuation Drill will be held tomorrow (20 Oct 2010) at the Manipal University Dubai, Block 7 between 9:30 am to 10 am. All the occupants present in Block 7 have been informed to evacuate the building as soon as the fire alarm rings. 

Mr. N. C. Krishnakumar, Facilities Manager said “All the students and staff will have to assemble at the designated assembly point. The assembly point is next to the ambulance area in the front of the University building." 

He further said "All security guards are trained and will be present to guide people out. The evacuation will take place in a sequential order, starting with the third floor. The first priority will be given to the physically challenged people and we will provide them with ample support.”

Students are requested to co-operate and follow the drill procedures and not to take it lightly.
