Fire reel shutdown



Important works in the gastroenterology ward on level 3 will require the shutdown of all hydrant and hose reels on Monday 11 May.

Plans to take the equipment offline from 7.00 am - 5.00 pm have been discussed with all key departments and fire authorities to ensure safety remains paramount.

All sprinkler systems, which run off an independent system, will remain online during the works.

Fire & Rescue, the Building Maintenance Centre (BMC), Switchboard, Disaster Control and Security will be updated before the shutdown and after the completion of works. The after-hours nurse manager will also be notified once works are finished.

As always, staff are urged to be vigilant of smoke or fire. Call 2222 in the case of an emergency.

If you have any queries, contact the Westmead Redevelopment Team on 1800 990 296.
