Fire Safety and Drill Training Outline

General Fire Hazard Awareness

The procedures for emergency response are trained to employees and client department personnel with the required information concerning the location, operation and use of emergency equipment installed in the workplace

This means overview knowledge of what the building has for equipment, specifics of how it’s used and when for fire extinguishers, fire panel, etc.

(Time line to train the above – 2.0 – 2.25 hrs including a 15 min. break per class and 2 to 3 DVD Videos)

Emergency Planning - Training of Supervisory Staff
(National Fire Code: 2.8.1.2)

Supervisory staff must be trained in the fire emergency procedures described in the fire safety plan, prior to staff assuming any responsibility or the implementation of the fire safety plan. The fire code also states that the adequately trained supervisory staff can be of great value in directing people to move in an orderly fashion in the event of fire and in carrying out appropriate fire control measures.

All staff must receive comprehensive initial training and maintain that level of training and awareness.

Emergency Planning
(National Fire Code: 2.8.2.1)

Some occupants of a building may require special assistance during evacuation because of injury, cognitive or physical limitations that will make them unable to proceed independently to a place of safety. Fire safety for these persons will depend to a large extent on preplanning, staff training and on their own awareness of the fire protection measures incorporated into the building.

Special assistance measures must be implemented for the disabled and supervisory staff adequately trained to assist in an emergency.

Who Requires Fire Safety and Hazard Awareness Training?

The National and Provincial Fire Codes, (the law) requires all persons with responsibility outlined in the fire safety plan to have fire safety and hazard awareness training.
