Emergency Evacuation Plans and Diagrams

Property owners and managers are responsible for ensuring that their fire safety and emergency response management systems are compliant to Australian Standard AS 3745-2010: Planning for emergencies in facilities. This includes having an effective emergency evacuation procedure and meeting all emergency evacuation plan requirements.

Maintaining fully compliant Emergency Management Plans, including accurate Evacuation Diagrams, are essential in order to achieve compliance. First 5 Minutes can assist with an emergency evacuation plan that meets Australian Standards, including diagrams that fulfil all emergency evacuation diagram requirements.

The Importance of a Fire and Evacuation Plan

It is imperative that your building’s occupants know how to quickly and easily act in the event of an emergency. Having a fire and evacuation plan in place, implementing clear evacuation signage and diagrams, and developing and rehearsing emergency response procedures will equip your occupants with the knowledge and tools they need to respond safely and correctly.

Effective Emergency Management Plans and Evacuation Diagrams can:

  • Reduce the effects of an emergency
  • Prevent personal injuries
  • Protect against loss of lives
  • Prevent damage to property
  • Minimise business interruptions
