In most University buildings local emergency procedures are maintained under the direction of a chief warden. Below is a list of current chief wardens.

The chief warden is appointed by the relevant head of school or administrative unit. In buildings with multiple tenants, the chief warden will generally be appointed by the head of the school or administrative unit with largest number of staff occupying the building.

University staff, students and affiliates are encouraged to contact the relevant chief warden if they are seeking information about the emergency procedures for a particular building.

Small buildings with few occupants will not have a chief warden. These buildings are under the direct control of the supervisor or manager in charge of the area.
