What is a Fire Safety Plan?November 12th, 2018 | by Vancouver Fire | in Safety Plans and Training | 0
Every building should be equipped with a proper fire safety plan. The plan is typically designed by the building owner in order to identify proper protocols that should be followed by occupants within the building in the event of a fire. This plan must be documented and implemented with anyone living or working in the building.
The fire safety plan should cover fire prevention, evacuation, and emergency response protocols. A copy of the plan should be made available to all employees in the building, who should be prepared to implement and follow the plan in the event of an emergency.
Templates are available to help building owners to build their fire safety plan – each plan will be different depending on specifics within the individual building and the city in which it is located.
A fire safety plan should always contain the following directions:
- Fire prevention
- Occupant safety
- Emergency response
The owner of the building is responsible for keeping this plan up to date and ensuring it is accurate and on hand.
