Fire Check Consultants can prepare ‘Fire and Evacuation Plan’ for your building and assist building management and occupants to understand the plan and impart training at the time of drills. The evacuation plan is prepared with the intent to prevent panic and ensure the safe, orderly and efficient egress of building occupants using all fire exit facilities available when confronted with a fire or other emergency. Generally, it is a legislative requirement for the occupier of a building to maintain a Fire and Evacuation Plan and to provide adequate instructions to occupants concerning the action to be taken by them in the event of a fire. This is especially important where the building work has involved a performance solution that includes a fire safety management procedure as a condition of the occupation and use of the building.
The building management is required to keep a copy of the building’s fire evacuation plan in QLD and all other states and territories along with the relevant approval documents for the building. A relevant approval document includes any approval document for the building that is relevant to a matter included in the Fire and Evacuation Plan for the building.
Fire drills must be conducted routinely so that all the occupants are aware of all the exit facilities. Fire Check Consultants have successfully conducted many fire evacuation drills in Brisbane and all over QLD in many buildings in which we explain all the actions which are required to be performed when Queensland Fire and Emergency Services is called. For effectiveness, we are regularly involved with the education campaign for the public inculcating sense of safety awareness and pre-arranged plan, which enable the occupants and visitors to leave safely and quickly. The importance of orderly and quick evacuation is to be explained to the occupants. Occupants should appreciate that the first consideration must be their evacuation to a place of safety during un-control fire incident well away from the building. Occupants on hearing the alarm should ensure that local fire brigade has been summoned. Compiling all the basic procedures and adding all the vital points, we can make a fire evacuation plan for your building.
