Old Adelphi Building

Date published: November 12, 2018

Large emergency services simulation this Friday

On Friday (16 November) there will be a major incident simulation happening outside the Old Adelphi and Centenary buildings and surrounding area

Approximately 150 emergency service personnel will take part in the training. Please be assured there's no need to be concerned. 

Students may also see an imitation decontamination unit on the car park to the rear of the Centenary building. Peru Street parking will be cordoned off by Greater Manchester Police, with limited parking on Farmer Norton. Students are advised to park on Irwell Place on Friday which has sufficient space.

Our students will play an active role in the simulation, with pupils from the School of Arts and Media filming the day for fire service training, as well as assuming acting and directing roles.

To summarise, a large emergency services presence will be visible on the Crescent on Friday but this is purely for training purposes - please don't be alarmed.
