Fire Evacuation Drill London

WHAT

Emergency Evacuation Drill is a practical test of how a building/business would be evacuated in the event of fire or other emergencies.

 

WHY

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 http://www.firesafe.org.uk/regulatory-reform-fire-safety-order-2005/

 

Requires a responsible person to:

  • Comply with the recommendations of your fire risk assessment.

  • Plan for an emergency

  • Ensure you have trained fire wardens.

 

 

Effectiveness of your emergency plan depends on regular training, instruction and practice.  You are required to keep records of all the fire training, and this includes Emergency Evacuation Drills.

 

WHEN

The law says that your Fire Risk Assessment will determine the required frequency of your Emergency Evacuation Drills, which should never be less than one in 12 months.

For higher risk premises, like Schools, Gyms, hotels and restaurants more frequent intervals might be required.

 

HOW

One of our Fire Risk Assessors will visit your site at a mutually agreed time, they will undertake all the necessary preliminary checks.

With your staff, they will run the evacuation exercise, monitoring it at all stages.

After the evacuation, our assessor will de-brief all fire wardens participating in the drill with additional de-brief for a responsible person.

Produce a report from the evacuation highlighting any issues and identifying required improvements to the evacuation process, helping you in maintaining compliance.
