Fire Safety & Evacuation Plans
In the event of a fire emergency, every second counts. Altus specializes in developing Fire Safety & Evacuation Plans that are both comprehensive and easy to implement. These plans delineate the quickest and safest evacuation routes, assembly points, and protocols to ensure a coordinated and orderly evacuation. Our plans are tailored to cater to the specific nuances of your building, taking into consideration factors such as building layout, occupancy type, and existing safety installations. Through regular updates and revisions, we ensure that our plans remain aligned with the changing dynamics of the building and its surroundings, offering a resilient shield against potential fire emergencies.
Emergency Action Plans (Non-Fire Emergencies)
Being prepared for non-fire emergencies is not just a precaution, but a necessity. Altus stands at the forefront in developing comprehensive Emergency Action Plans that outline clear, actionable protocols for a range of non-fire emergencies, including but not limited to explosions, biological, chemical, or nuclear incidents, natural disasters, and situations involving bomb threats or suspicious packages. These plans are meticulously crafted to facilitate a systematic, safe, and orderly response, whether it involves evacuating the building or sheltering in place, thereby ensuring the well-being of building occupants.
Our Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) aim to minimize evacuation time, directing individuals to a safe area or guiding them to the nearest secure means of egress. Additionally, the plans detail the utilization of available fire appliances, including the activation of alarms, to safeguard human life.
Altus is committed to nurturing a culture of safety and preparedness through continuous education programs for all building occupants. This initiative ensures the prompt reporting of emergency conditions, a swift response to alarms and notifications, and the immediate initiation of safety procedures to protect life and contain potential hazards until the arrival of responding authorities. These plans are complemented by a site-specific Building Information Card (BIC), a vital tool that encapsulates essential details to facilitate coordinated emergency responses.
Depending on local jurisdiction preferences or requirements, Emergency Action Plan documents may be integrated with a building’s Fire Safety and Evacuation Plan, creating a unified strategy that addresses a broad spectrum of emergency scenarios. By choosing Altus, you are opting for a partner who not only prioritizes the safety and well-being of your establishment’s occupants but also offers plans grounded in real-world insights and expertise, ensuring compliance and peace of mind.
