How to make a Fire Emergency Plan.

November 26th, 2014

…Forming a ‘Fire Emergency Plan’ (.pdf)
…Example ‘Fire Emergency Plan’ (.pdf)

All occupiers are required to form a Fire Emergency Plan.
This Plan needs to give consideration to the findings of the Risk Assessment.
The plan must provide clear instructions on:

• The action employees should take if they discover a fire

• How all employees will be made aware of a fire

• How the premises will be evacuated

• The location of the assembly point and procedures for checking the workplace has been evacuated

• The identification of the main escape routes, access to and escape from them to a place of safety

• The use and location of firefighting equipment

• The identity and duties of those employees who have specific responsibilities in the event of fire

• Arrangements for the safe evacuation of people identified as being especially at risk; such as contractors, those with disabilities, members of the public and visitors

• Power and process isolation

• Specific arrangements, if necessary, for high risk areas of the workplace

• Calling of the Fire Brigade and other emergency services

• Procedures for liaising with the Fire Brigade on arrival and the identification of any areas of high risk

• The identification and provision of the correct fire safety training.

• In multi-occupied buildings it is the responsibility of the Landlord to coordinate the Emergency Plans of the Tenants.

• All employees should be made aware of the Emergency Plan.
