Here’s what we do in an evacuation drill

Preparation and planning

For preparation and planning purposes, we hold a preliminary discussion of the daily schedule with you by telephone about one week in advance. Among other things, we ask for information about the operator of the fire alarm system and the local fire department. In this context, we fine-tune the daily schedule for the day of the exercise and check the list of employees.

Practical implementation

The fire drill begins with the activation of the alarm. Our experts then observe the evacuation and conduct a control walk in the building. An important part of this is checking the list of employees. After the evacuation, a speech is given to the employees.

Debriefing and evaluation

After the fire drill, the fire alarm system must first be reset and the operator of the fire alarm system must be informed that the drill has been completed. Overall, everyone who was involved in organizing the evacuation drill should also participate in the evaluation. An important part of the debriefing and evaluation is the derivation of measures. Finally, we hand over the protocol to you.

FAQ
Evacuation drill

1

What is an evacuation drill?

An evacuation drill, also called a fire drill or evacuation drill, is a practical exercise in which employees are expected to exit the building in an orderly and expeditious manner. The evacuation drill trains employees on how to act in the event of a fire or other emergency.

Regular training and hands-on evacuation drills are essential to ensure that everyone leaves the building safely.

Many employees underestimate the benefits of an evacuation drill. They often think that they leave the building every day and therefore know how to behave in the event of a hazard. As a result, mistakes can be made during the drill due to laziness or convenience, which can cost lives in the event of an actual evacuation.

2

Is an evacuation drill mandatory?

Yes, according to the Workplace Ordinance (ArbStättV), the employer has the obligation to conduct evacuation drills or exercises to clear the building. The ordinance refers to the company’s escape and rescue plan (Section 4 (4) ArbStättV). It is the basis for planning and conducting the exercise.

3

What points should be considered when preparing a fire drill?

When preparing the exercise, the following points in particular should be taken into account:

- Inform the responsible helpers about the planned exercise so that they can help carry it out on the day of the exercise.

- Train those involved in the evacuation: every employee must know that it is his or her duty to learn about proper behavior and then apply it.

- Identify and resolve in advance any potential problems that could hinder the exercise, such as blocked doors.

- Consider areas where the escape alarm may not be heard at all, such as restrooms or basements.

- Switch the company’s telephone system centrally at the beginning of the exercise so that callers are aware of the situation.

- Do not leave small valuables and personal items (keys, cell phones, etc.) in the building or lock them away to avoid panic or theft.

4

How often should an evacuation drill be conducted?

Evacuation drills should be carried out at regular intervals. ASR A2. 3 recommends a fire drill every 2-5 years. High turnover, new hires, relocations, renovations, complicated spatial conditions or increased fire hazards rather require an annual rhythm. Special dates should always be set for an evacuation drill after renovations and moves. Even with new employees, always walk the evacuation route once and go to the assembly point so that the routes are memorized.

5

Scope of an evacuation exercise?

The evacuation drill attempts to simulate a fire situation. As a rule, the fire alarm is controlled and activated in coordination with the fire department. People in the building are told to get to safety. The evacuation is supervised by one of our specialists, who evaluates the procedure and reports on it.

The evacuation drill is used to test the effectiveness of the emergency plan and to consolidate staff training. It is required by law.

The purpose of the fire drill is to ensure that those present have been trained in the following:

- Authorizations as to who is allowed to sound the fire alarm.

- The professional behavior during the exercise.

- How or via which emergency exits and escape routes the workplace should be left.

People should not leave the building as quickly as possible, but as orderly as possible.
