In case of evacuation
A ‘running man’ escape sign denotes all external emergency exit doors.
Emergency announcements are made to advise occupants that a fire or other emergency exists. These announcements are audible in all occupied parts of the premises.
Do not use the lift.
Follow the instructions of the Guinness Storehouse personnel and go directly to your nearest stairs.
There are three stairwells from the 6th floor to the ground floor and two from the 7th floor. All three stairwells are sterile and pressurised to inhibit the spread of fire.
If mobility allows, descend the stairs to the emergency exit route.
If you are unable to descend the stairs, wait on the landing near the doorway and the Fire Marshal/s for that floor will attend in due course and arrange safe descent.
