Failure to provide an effective emergency plan for ALL occupants is a an offence
It is a legal requirement to provide an up to date, practiced emergency plan.
source:Fire Safety Order 2005

  • Do you and your staff know and practice the emergency plan?
  • When was your last fire drill?
  • Have you accounted for individuals needing help or assistance such as wheelchair users or those with visual or hearing impairment or with learning difficulties?
  • Did you know your emergency plan must not rely on the fire service?

These are all basic considerations in an Emergency Plan.


Clearly the 2017 tragedy at Grenfell Tower has increased the public's awareness of fire safety, fire prevention and evacuation procedures. With regards to evacuation there are various strategies to deploy dependent on the type of building and users/occupants such as

  • simultaneous evacuation (everybody out)
  • progressive horizontal evacuation (moving people one compartment at a time away from the fire)
  • two stage alarm (alarm is on a delay due to the high volume of people in the building)
  • phased evacuation (for larger buildings)
