Do you provide a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan for every guest with a disability?
Current equality and fire safety legislation complement each other by ensuring that buildings are not only accessible to disabled and vulnerable people, but also that they can escape safely in case of fire or other emergencies. Part of the fire safety risk assessment for any building/premise must include an emergency plan with an evacuation strategy. This plan must take into account the evacuation of all people who are likely to be in or using the building/ premise and give details on how it will be implemented. This must include disabled people.
