Fire and Evacuation Plan Overview

The Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 requires every building to have a written Fire and Evacuation Plan in place. The Fire and Evacuation Plan is a comprehensive document detailing the policies and procedures of the business when responding to and managing fire and other emergencies.  In addition to being in written form it must also include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • The evacuation signs for the building.
  • The evacuation coordination procedures for the building.
  • The evacuation coordinator for the building.
  • Instructions for evacuating persons with special needs.
  • Fire Safety Adviser details (if required).
  • Name and address of the building.
  • The names and contact details for persons responsible for giving the first response and general evacuation training.
  • Name of the person who developed, changed and reviewed the Fire and evacuation plan.

The Fire and Evacuation Plan is designed in consultation with personnel from your business to ensure site specific hazards and other requirements are met.

The Fire and Evacuation Plan complies with the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 and Australian Standard 3745 2010.
