Fire Evacuation Drill: (Term Times - 4 Times A Year - Start Of Each School Term)

An fire evacuation drill should be carried out at least twice a year (6 monthly).
This is dependent on the size, nature of operations and occupancy characteristics.

The fire drill, amongst other items, needs to take account of the following:
  • Testing of active & passive fire systems and ensuring their correct operations.
  • Practicing the procedure adopted within the building, to test its effectiveness.
  • Allowing fire wardens and fire incident controllers practice in their roles.
  • Demonstrating suitable procedures are indeed in-place, rehearsed & effective.

How do you know what to do?

Unless you have received suitable training, you don't.
Fire warden training does not necessarily qualify you to undertake fire evacuation drills.
There are a number of areas needed to be addressed during an fire evacuation drill.

These can be divided in to two categories:

1. RSET (Required Safe Escape Time)
2. ASET (Available Safe Escape Time)

  • Detect the fire
  • Sound the alarm.
  • Occupants to recognise the alarm.
  • Occupants to respond to the alarm.
  • Travel time.

  • Alert time from fire initiation to detection/ recognition.
  • Pre-movement time by behaviour that diverts an individual from the escape route.
  • Travel time to physically get to an exit.
  • Flow time i.e. how long it takes for the occupants to move through the various stages.

Other Areas To Be Assessed:
  • Class of building
  • Optimum escape time
  • Actual escape time
  • Distance of travel
  • Density factors
  • Fire exits

These are just a few areas needed to be assessed within an suitable fire evacuation strategy.
Implementing all the above and more, into the fire evacuation procedure is a professional service.
