Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans
Plan for people who may need assistance when responding to an emergency
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 PEEP (Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan) should be included as part of your overall Emergency Management Plan and emergency evacuation checklist. A PEEP is an individualised emergency plan designed especially for an occupant with a special need who may need assistance during an evacuation.
