A fire drill was carried out at the Ayazağa Campus in order to be prepared for possible fires and to be able to see whether the measures taken are quickly implemented or not.

Regarding the issue, on April 25, at a meeting held at the Rectorate Senate Hall, the top management level of the rectorate consisting of the Rector, Vice Rectors, General Secretary, General Secretary Assistants, Department Heads and Branch Managers was informed about the evacuation, and in accordance with the decision taken, the date of the drill was determined. Following this, on May 16th, theoretical and practical orientation training was given to those who would take part in the drill, where they received the tools and equipment to be used in the exercise.
