Emergency Evacuation Plans In Australia By Fire Block Plans Can Save Lives And Properties
Fire Block Plans works with businesses to design emergency evacuation plans that fulfill compliance requirements demanded by Australian agencies and help to prevent loss of lives and property.

According to announcements released by Fire Block Plans and Gordon Boyd, the firm’s expertise lies in fire design, emergency planning, and AutoCAD. It helps Australian businesses create emergency evacuation plans that serve to save lives and property during emergencies such as fires, and also ensure compliance with Australian safety regulations. 

According to sources, Work Health & Safety Regulation 2011 requires that property owners and managers in Australia implement an emergency evacuation plan for their facilities. The plan consists of emergency evacuation diagrams, written emergency response plan, and routine emergency training and mock evacuations. Fire Block Plans draws emergency evacuation diagrams for its clients. These diagrams provide occupants of a facility with critical information about paths to follow and steps to take during an emergency. 

Information supplied by evacuation diagrams includes steps to execute during an emergency, exit routes, types of firefighting equipment and their location, etc. Evacuation diagrams are required by law; according to AS3745, they are supposed to be put up in prominent locations that are easily accessible. The diagrams are to be placed 120 cm to 160 cm above the floor level. Without the right number of evacuation diagrams in place, occupants and visitors in a premise may find it difficult to recollect the location of a fire extinguisher and the exit route to be followed.

It was developed as a best practice guide for building safety and provides a framework for emergency procedures. The Fire Protection Association Australia (FPAA) states that anyone conducting a business or undertaking business at a facility should ensure they have evacuation diagrams in accordance with the requirements of AS 3745-2010.”

Elaborating on the need for evacuation diagrams, Boyd said, “Evacuation Diagrams help to prevent personal injuries, provide clarity and direction when moving to an assembly area during an emergency, prevent loss of lives in the event of an emergency, reduce effects of an emergency, prevent damage to property, and reduce interruptions to business. As part of your facility’s emergency evacuation plan, your evacuation diagrams must be designed & installed in accordance with Australian Standard AS3745-2010. 

It is your legal obligation to ensure an effective emergency evacuation plan is in place, and failure to do so will result in penalties. In Queensland, the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 dictates the legislative requirements for Evacuation Diagrams. Contact us for more information about Queensland Evacuation Diagrams.”
