From evacuating to dialing 9-1-1, a contingency plan will help reduce the amount of fire restoration work needed in the aftermath. We've put together 3 helpful tips for you if you suffer fire damage this summer. 

3 Elements of a Strong Fire Escape Plan for an Office

1. Designate Roles

The first step is to assign different roles in the fire response plan. First, name a person who is going to be in charge. Then, have them designate roles for remaining personnel. (If applicable)

There should be someone to alert the fire department (plus a fire restoration crew), someone to sound the alarm system, and others to direct employees out of the building. When everybody knows their role, the evacuation process will go much smoother than without having one. 

2. Label Routes

The next step is the important one. It’s crucial to establish the fastest and safest routes out of the building. Make sure everyone is aware of the contingency plan! Nobody plans on having a disaster, but we strongly suggest everyone has a plan.

Create multiple routes for exiting the building, in addition, make sure these routes are readily available to everyone, they should be labeled clearly throughout the entire building!

3. Rehearse

Conduct regular fire drills, this is a perfect way to test your contingency plan and make adjustments if necessary. It also allows others to rehearse their roles regarding the contingency plan.
