Fire Safety Plan

1/15/2020 (Permalink)

No one likes to think about their commercial property catching fire or how much time and the cost it will take to restore your property. Even more than that, they don't like to imagine what could go wrong if people were inside the building at the time the fire breaks out. You should think about these things, though, because having a fire escape plan for your business could be the very thing that saves someone's life.

Implementing a safety plan can be as simple as following three basic steps.

1. Map Your Routes

Most buildings have an obvious path that can get occupants outside quickly. What happens, though, if that path is blocked by the fire? A quick path is great, but you also need to map alternate routes that allow employees to exit the building safely. Chart possible routes and post them in prominent locations throughout the building to improve your emergency escape plan and the odds of everyone getting out alive.

2. Practice Your Plan

Everyone who works in your building should be familiar with how the fire alarm sounds. It is recommended that you conduct routine fire drills to ensure that everyone knows what they are supposed to do in an emergency situation. Assess the outcome of each drill, and update your fire escape plan accordingly.

3. Keep in Contact

Once everyone has evacuated, you should have a procedure in place for confirming that everyone exited out of the building safely. Have a meeting place and have each person check in as soon as possible. A company roster with contact information should be stored on the cloud or in a secure online location so that it can be easily accessed from your cell phone and used to confirm the safety of those who are not physically present at the meeting site.

Having a fire escape plan is crucial to the safety of those inside your commercial property.
