Whys is it important?
Why do you think the emergency evacuation plan is important? Well, it assures to provide a safe path for the evacuation of people in case of an emergency. When an emergency situation occurs, the employees should be vigilant enough to arrive at. This decision should be made at the spot whether the employees should get inside the building or move out and ask the people to follow them. The emergency evacuation plan should be a perfect one so that the visitors or the personnel stuck in that building can be evacuated through a proper emergency evacuation plan in an appropriate and timely manner.

For instance if there is an earthquake it is advised that the concerned employees should remain inside and ask the visitors to be calm and stay inside but if there is a problem like a fire, of chemical spillage etc. then there should be a proper fire escape plan. As fire can spread throughout the building, only if you have a good emergency fire plan then you will be able to save the people inside and get them out through a safe passage. It is really important to have a pre-planned emergency evacuation plan to deal with such emergency evacuations as nobody knows what happens at what time.

Every good company should have an emergency evacuation plan so as to deal with these ambiguous situations in order to save their building as well as the people inside. If you do not happen to have a good one there is a chance that you will be in a huge loss. Not only many people will be affected but also will be your valued asset. As discussed in case of a fire, an emergency fire plan is a visual guide which has all the actions that should be taken immediately by the staff working in that building. They include all the SOP’s to be followed and all the arrangements that should be done at once in case of a fire. The employees also do drills so that they do not panic in case of a real emergency and are used to the proper management of emergency evacuation.

At some places a specific person is selected and trained adequately so that he is the in charge and knows how to deal with the situation at the time of emergency. He is trained professionally according to the emergency evacuation plan and told all the procedures for evacuation. If there is no trained person at that time people get panicked and a lot of people can lose their lives if not treated correctly.

The design being used for the visual guide should be clear and simpleton understand. All the essential details as well as orientation should be checked keenly.
