Training and drills are the basic components of LAU’s emergency preparedness program. Building occupants should be well trained on emergency procedures to be able to adequately implement them during real emergencies. A well-trained team will minimize the number of casualties and property damage due to emergencies.

Fire drills and safety training are currently being performed on a yearly basis for residence hall occupants on both campuses and for Natural Sciences Department students in order to familiarize them with available safety components and procedures to be followed during emergencies.

Fire Safety Awareness Campaign

A ‘Fire Safety’ awareness campaign was also initiated by LAU’s Facilities Management, Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Unit, to further increase readiness and communicate the importance of being prepared to LAU’s students, faculty and staff.
