Fire and Emergency Plans

Emergency evacuation plans are what should be developed in order to ensure the most efficient as well as the safest evacuation time of all expected residents of a city, region or structure. An "evacuation time" benchmark for different conditions and hazards is established. Such benchmarks can be established by using regulations, simulations (e.g., modeling the flow of people in a building) and best practices for determining the benchmark.

The proper planning is what uses at least a few exits, the so-called “contra-flow lanes” as well as the special technologies in order to ensure fast, complete and full evacuation. It is also important to consider for personal situations as they may affect some individual's ability to evacuate. It may include the alarm signals with both visual and aural alerts and all the needed evacuation equipment (e.g., pads, sleds and chairs for disabled people).

In order to create the right building fire and emergency plans, the regulations such as building codes can be also used so it can reduce the possibility of panic. In this way, it may allow the individuals to process the need to self-evacuate having no causing alarm. The right planning can implement a so-called “all-hazards approach” meaning that the plans can be reused for the other hazards that can appear.

Any emergency planning should be focused on preventing the emergencies from occurring as failing that it may be possible to develop a good action plan for mitigating the effects as well as the results of any emergencies. In order to reduce or to avoid the significant losses to a business, emergency managers should be focused on identifying and anticipating the potential risks in order to reduce their probability of occurring.

Following a common process to anticipate, assess, prevent, prepare, respond and recover from an incident, emergency managers can use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 for making the professionally looking building plans as well as the fire and emergency plans.

Fire and Emergency Plans solution was developed by the team of IT specialists of CS Odessa in order to provide all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 users with most common tools that might be needed for creating both Fire and Emergency Plans.

Apart from the emergency managers, the Fire and Emergency Plans solution can be also used by electricians, interior designers, telecommunications managers, builders and other technicians.


There are 3 stencil libraries containing 75 vector objects in the Fire and Emergency Planning solution.

Examples

There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 application by using the Fire and Emergency Plans solution. Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.

All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The Fire and Emergency Plans solution is available to all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 diagramming and drawing software.

Example 1: Evacuation Plan

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 using the combination of libraries from the “Fire and Emergency Plans” solution and “Floor Plans” solution. An experienced user spent 15 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows an evacuation plan from the premises of a large building. The emergency evacuation from a building is an immediate and urgent transfer of people in a case of hazard or threat, in cases of fire, storm, flood, earthquake, tornado, hurricane, explosion, or any other danger for human lives, property, and realty. The emergency evacuation plans are helpful at this, they ensure effective evacuation and help to realize it the safest way, assist people to find emergency exits as quick as possible and the rescues to orient in a given space, regardless of whether we are talking about evacuation from a large building or a small, office space or a residential house, or even from some open area. Directions to the emergency exit are visually displayed by the arrows colored in green on this evacuation plan. Location of fire extinguishers, first aid kits, telephones, electrical panels and other details is also marked on the plan.
