St. Joseph's Manor is equipped with many features designed to provide for maximum protection in the event of fire. It is divided into zones protected by fire doors, which close automatically in the event of a fire. Heat, smoke detectors and sprinklers are located throughout the building. Monthly fire drills are conducted to ensure that staff and residents are familiar with fire emergency procedures.

If you discover a fire:

  • Leave the fire area and close the door to the area
  • Pull handle down at nearest pull station
  • Notify staff
  • Follow instructions from staff

If alarm sounds:

  • Remain calm
  • Remain in room or lounge (if clear of fire)
  • Prepare for evacuation
  • Follow instructions from staff (i.e. which exit to use)
