Contents of a Fire Emergency Plan.

What should be covered in your emergency plan?

A simple emergency plan must show that you have:

  1. A suitable fire detection system.
  2. A process for identifying false alarms.
  3. A clear understanding of who calls 999.
  4. A clear passageway to all escape routes.
  5. Suitable routes and exits for people to escape.
  6. Clearly marked escape routes – these should be as short and direct as possible.
  7. Emergency doors that open easily – and emergency lighting if it is needed.
  8. Providing training so your employees know how to use the escape routes.
  9. Set out a safe meeting point for staff – Assembly Point.
  10. Considered the needs of anyone who might not be able to escape quickly if there’s a fire. For example, wheelchair users or people with visual impairments.
