Sensory Alert: Upcoming Fire Drills

Sensory Alert

There will be two fire drills held in the college on the following dates:

  • 6.45pm Wednesday 9th October
  • 11.15am & 6.45pm Thursday 10th October

During these times, the fire alarm will be activated in both the main college and the research building which will then be fully evacuated. As the sound of the fire alarm can cause sensory overload for students and staff on the autism spectrum, please keep these dates in mind as you may prefer to leave the college before the alarm sounds. 

National College of Ireland is working towards autism-friendly status with advocacy group AsIAm. We are committed to 8 key principles for autism inclusion and have recently launched our Autism-Friendly Initiative to support and increase awareness for all those on the autism spectrum.
