The University of Technology and Applied Sciences-Salalah Health and Safety Committee in cooperation with the Civil Defense and Ambulance conducted an unannounced fire drill on March 23rd, 2022 to spread awareness about safe evacuation in cases of emergency situations. Students and staff were demonstrated on how to exit buildings in a timely and organized manner including the designated areas for evacuation assembly points.
The evacuation operation began moments after the fire alarm alerted all staff and students at the English Language Center. Staff and students were immediately evacuated from their classrooms and gathered at the assembly area where they were demonstrated fire alarm preventions and drills.
A series of future safety drills are planned to be conducted across all departments of the College.
