What is a fire drill checklist?

In case of fire, buildings must be evacuated quickly and all employees are required to go to the assembly point. Such fire drills or evacuation exercises are held at regular intervals.

When a fire drill takes place, proper planning and documentation of the process is paramount. Safety officers can use fire drill checklists to plan the emergency procedure and contribute significantly to the safe coordination of business emergency plans. In addition, the data collected from the fire drill can then be evaluated to improve and make future fire and evacuation drills more efficient. Fire drills are one part of overall company fire safety. Make sure you are aware of the requirements and regulations for inspecting and maintaining fire extinguishers as part of your overall fire safety procedures.

3 tips for fire drills

An evacuation drill should be carried out regularly, taking into account all possible risk factors. Even small deficiencies in the procedure can lead to devastating, even fatal, consequences. Therefore, every building or company should inform itself about the procedure and the correct communication of the behavior in an emergency and coordinate the procedure to avoid ambiguities. Important factors for the emergency plan are, for example, the meeting points in case of an emergency, the exact evacuation procedure, and the existing or necessary equipment.

The following 3 steps support the planning of the fire drill checklist procedure and promote an efficient and regulated procedure:

  • Lay down the emergency plan together
    Plan together what to expect during the emergency drill and organize teams for specific tasks. Be aware that unexpected problems may occur. Consult with trained firefighters who are responsible in case of an emergency. Communicate the emergency evacuation plan clearly and discuss behaviour during the exercise.
  • Communicate & document the process to everyone.

  • Analyse the process evaluate the whole process
    Identify the risks and take action to improve. Then create a report to comply with regulatory requirements.
