Small Office Evacuation Plan

Successfully carrying out an emergency evacuation requires teamwork and flexibility, in addition to a well-constructed plan.


How to prepare an Evacuation plan for your office?

Here is a list of the main operations:

  • Designate an evacuation route.
  • Identify a location to meet after the evacuation.
  • Post the evacuation plan (including floor plan with locations of fire extinguishers).
  • Periodically inspect fire-suppression and extinguishing equipment.
  • Hold periodic evacuation drills.
  • Assemble an off-site necessity first aid kit.

Responsibilities

Assigning responsibilities for key roles during a disaster evacuation will ensure that your evacuation plan runs smoothly. The main roles must include:

  • Evacuation Coordinator-Handles the checklist to ensure that all important steps are being managed.
  • Head checker- A headcount should be done before employees exit the building, and once again after everyone has convened at the designated off-site meeting point. The checker ensures that all office members are accounted for and no one is left behind.
  • Emergency first aid practitioner- Must have several office members on staff who are skilled in first aid. They will need to tend to any wounded until a licensed medic can arrive.
  • Alert manager- This office member who calls 911 to alert the police and fire department that a disaster has occurred, closes office fire doors, and turns off the gas lines if an earthquake has struck.
