Emergency Evacuation Plans by Fire Block Plans Help Businesses in Australia Meet Compliance Norms and Ensure Safety on Premises

By: Get News
Fire Block Plans has around 15 years of experience designing fire alarms, hydrants, and sprinkler block plans. The business shares its expertise with clients who wish to develop effective fire safety plans. The team from Fire Block Plans has a reputation for efficiency, affordability, and quality drawings.

According to announcements released by Fire Block Plans and Gordon Boyd, the emergency evacuation plans and fire evacuation plans drawn by the AutoCAD experts from this business enable businesses to comply with AS3745 – Planning for emergencies in facilities.

The evacuation diagrams contain useful information and are orientated to inform the viewers of their current position on the premises. 

Fire Block Plans draws evacuation diagrams for installation at common pathways for easy visibility by visitors, residents, and employees. The fire evacuation plans designed by this firm conform to the minimum size requirements stipulated by law. The diagrams are hung on the wall, laminated and framed.

Fire Block Plans recommends that businesses and residential complexes have an emergency response plan. Only by having such a plan in place can one justify the time and money spent on evacuation diagrams. Such plans may require ongoing training to ensure the health and safety of those present during a fire. If a workplace does not have an up-to-date emergency response plan, it risks fines of up to $30,000.

The Emergency Control Organization (ECO) established at a workplace develops an emergency response plan that covers timely evacuation based on the nature of the emergency. The ECO consists of staff that will participate in the emergency response. Emergencies that may occur at a workplace include medical emergencies, fires, bomb threats, chemical spills, etc. Emergency evacuation diagrams play a vital role in safe evacuations; first aid officers, chief wardens, and floor wardens must know the locations of these diagrams.

Gordon Boyd of Fire Block Plans said, “The most important thing to remember when installing Evacuation Diagrams is to follow the position requirements mentioned above – 1200mm to 1600mm off finished floor level.

Evacuation diagrams are often installed to fire doors (entrance doors to apartments, hotel rooms, and fire stairs), smoke doors and fire-rated walls. In doing so, care must be taken to ensure the fire rating of the door or wall is not impacted by using screws or similar fasteners.

Fire alarm block plans, also known as zone block plans or fire detection block plans, are diagrams clearly showing the fire detection zones in correspondence with the fire indicator panel.

Predominantly used by the fire brigade, the zone in alarm on the FIP will be located on the block plan to determine the fire risk area.

The fire service company will also use this to test detectors during their annual testing. Tactical Fire Plans (TFPs) are to scale drawings showing the location of installed fire & safety equipment. Tactical Fire Plans are a component of the Emergency Services Information Package (ESIP).

Firefighters will utilize these drawings to establish the best strategies to manage & combat fire or emergency situations.

Tactical Fire Plans are to be installed in the Fire Control Room or Fire Control Centre and inserted into each copy of the ESIP.”
