Fire Drill Procedures

Fire Drill Procedure Consultancy

Can We Help You with Your Fire Drill Procedures?

Effective fire drills are an essential element of any fire management system. The drills should be designed and tested to ensure that all employees and visitors can safely, quickly and efficiently evacuate a building where and when an emergency arises. Fire Drills should typically be run twice a year and special measures should be incorporated into your drills where shift workers are employed.

We are established since 2005 and have been creating, developing and providing fire drill scenarios for small, medium and large businesses and organisations, in Dublin city and county as well as on a nationwide basis throughout Ireland.

Starting out with a blank page each fire drill scenario is designed to identify any weakness in your current evacuation methodology and offer solutions to rectify these shortcomings. The drill can also be used as part of any induction process ensuring that new staff are quickly brought up to to speed with your existing policies and procedures. The drill can be used to identify both positive and negative reactions of those members of staff who hold designated responsibilities such as fire warden and first aiders.

Our services include a full debriefing session with all stakeholders so any unexpected consequences or issues arising can be examined and dealt with in a satisfactory manner. A detailed report of this debriefing session containing relevant observations from participants and other interested parties will be forwarded to all you review if there are further actions to be taken and implemented.

Our fire drill scenarios are bespoke and each individual drill is developed by a member of our highly skilled team of Fire Safety Consultants.

We would welcome the opportunity to submit a proposal covering the development of fire drills for your organisation.

Fire Drill Information

What is a Fire Drill?

A Fire Drill is generally an evacuation exercise aimed at evacuating the building utilising designated / alternative escape routes. The exact nature and makeup of a drill can vary. For example in a hospital environment it may not be possible to evacuate all occupants in a timely manner completely from the building so methods like horizontal evacuation and increased fire protection measures within the building apply.

Are Fire Drills a legal requirement?

Fire drills are a legal requirement under the Fire Services Act 1981 - 2003 and Section 11 (Emergency Planning) of the Safety, Health and welfare at Work Act 2005.

How often should Fire Drills take place?

Fire drills should take place at least twice per year. In some high risk environments the frequency may have to be increased,

Who should take part in a Fire Drill?

All staff and occupants should ideally take part in the fire drill. It is particularly important for persons in authority such as management to comply and take full part to ensure an example is being set.
