Building A Fire Safety Plan

What Is a Building Fire Safety Plan?

A fire safety plan is a building-specific living document that provides emergency procedures to be followed in case of a fire in a building. This document shows the type, locations, operations and maintenance of the building fire emergency systems such as fire alarm system, sprinkler system and standpipe system. The plan provides alternative measures for the safety of occupants during a shut down of any of the life safety systems in the building.

How To Create a Building Fire Safety Plan?

A building fire safety plan is created by gathering all the information that may be needed by occupants or responding fire services in the event of a fire emergency. 

What Should a Building Fire Safety Plan Include?

The building fire safety plan should show the building floor plans, fire service access, fire alarm panel, and fire safety systems. The building fire safety plan should also include a list of persons whom require assistance to evacuate.

How Much Does a Building Fire Safety Plan Cost?

The cost varies depending on the size and complexity of the building. For a condominium or large building prices can range from $3,000 to $6,000.
