Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEP)

For the millions of Australians with special needs, an emergency presents a real challenge. First 5 Minutes can help you plan ahead so that people with special needs, care providers and first responders can respond quickly and safely when an emergency alarm is raised in a facility.

To be fully compliant with the Australian Standard AS 3745-2010: Planning for Emergencies in Facilities, a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) should be included as part of your overall Emergency  Management Plan. A PEEP is an individualised emergency plan designed especially for an occupant with a special need who may need assistance during an evacuation.

Fully Customised

Our highly qualified and experienced specialists can assist building owners, managers and occupiers in developing fully compliant PEEPs, tailored to suit every person's type of special need or disability, within the facility. As identified by the Australian Standard, we can help you create PEEPs for occupants:

  • Accompanied by an assistant
  • Having a guide or companion animal
  • Having an ambulatory disability
  • Using a wheeled mobility appliance
  • Using alternative forms of information and communication
  • Who are easily fatigued
  • Who easily experience acute anxiety in an emergency
  • Who easily experience extreme confusion in an emergency
