Re: Fire evacuation

I have a plan in each room showing the primary route. You could also put a master plan in you risk assessment showing some alternatives. They love all that, unless the fire risk assessment is large enough to be a fire hazard in itself you missed something out! [Confused.png]

Re: Fire evacuation

We have a blue print of the school with the primary route in blue and a secondary route (in case first route is blocked) in red. When doing fire drill the HT will on occasion lock a door on the blue route meaning they need to use the red route.
