As part of the University’s crisis management and recovery policy, Monash is conducting an evacuation exercise at Clayton campus between 10.30-11.30am on Wednesday 2 October 2019 to test and review its incident response procedures.
Teaching and research activities will be impacted for around an hour and affected faculties have been notified of the exercise in advance. No further disruption is anticipated and operations outside the test area will continue as normal.
For those students and staff based at Clayton campus who are part of the University’s SMS alert service, you will receive an SMS to advise of the exercise taking place, and a further message once it has finished.
