Each year, Student Affairs Office invites personnel from Macau Fire Services Bureau to guide the five student dormitories to conduct “fire drills”. The “Fire Drill” for the 2122 academic year was successfully completed on the morning of November 6, 2021(Saturday), and nearly 3,000 dormitory students participated.

The student dormitory "Fire Drill" officially started at 9:30 this morning, simulating a fire in the dormitory room. The student who found the fire notified the security personnel to call the police. When the alarm bell rang, the dormitory students were quickly evacuated from the dormitory rooms to the designated venues according to the evacuation route. In the "fire drill", the dormitory students walked to the assembly location orderly and fast, and the entire evacuation was completed in about 10 minutes, reflecting the seriousness and teamwork spirit of the dormitory students. The entire "Fire Drill" process went smoothly. After the drill, representatives of the relevant units communicated the need for improvement.

Some Participants said the "Fire Drill" can provide a better understanding of escape routes and techniques in the event of a fire.
