Fire Evacuation Plan Dos and Don’ts

9 March 2016

In the event of fire a business of any size needs to have a clear and concise commercial fire evacuation strategy in place. This strategy should be created by someone trained in fire safety, and updated at regular intervals or when a significant change in circumstances requires it, such as the construction of a new building or the alteration of access points.

Once you have a fire safety evacuation plan in place it is important to rehearse this procedure through regular and consistent fire drills, but unfortunately since many commercial fire safety plans contain major flaws and omissions, these drills are actually teaching people a few bad habits.

The best way to ensure that your commercial evacuation plan meets the required safety criteria of your building and its occupants is to have it drafted by a qualified fire marshal. You can allocate any responsible member of your company as Fire Marshal, and Total Fire Services offer a comprehensive training course which equips your designated Marshal with all the information they need to ensure the safety of you and your employees.
