Fire Safety/Evacuation Plan Review Items

This is a draft cheat sheet. It is a work in progress and is not finished yet.

Introd­uction

Drafting an emergency action plan (EAP) is not enough to ensure the safety of your employees. When an evacuation is necessary, you will need respon­sible, trained indivi­duals who can supervise and coordinate activities to ensure a safe and successful evacua­tion. An EAP will be useful only if its content is up to date and employees are suffic­iently educated and trained before an actual evacua­tion. The following check points will help you succes­sfully develop and implement your plan:
