star this property answer text <p>Whilst the House of Commons is sitting the Serjeant at Arms (or an Associate) is positioned within the Chamber to manage any incidents which occur within it. Serjeants are supported by a team of Doorkeepers who are led by a Duty Principal Doorkeeper.</p><p>After eight minutes of a division, the entry doors to each lobby are locked by Doorkeepers, whilst the exit remains open. Doorkeepers remain with locked doors (and keys) to ensure they can be unlocked quickly if required in an emergency.</p><p>In the event of a fire (or other) evacuation, Doorkeepers will be directed to immediately unlock the doors and direct Members to evacuate by the most appropriate route – depending on the location of the incident.</p><p>Doorkeepers are first aid trained and have immediate access to equipment including first aid kits and an automated external defibrillator. Doorkeepers are also able to summon the nurse from Lower Waiting Hall.</p><p>The Serjeant at Arms is happy to discuss such procedures in detail with the hon. Member.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
