People notice EXIT signs all over the building and most of them have only seen the work place when it is bright and the lights are fully illuminated. But they may have no idea about what it would be like if the mains failed and emergency lights didn't work or to make it worse if it is a fire emergency, if smoke starts collecting in the ceiling and you have very little time to make decision on what to do?

Someone in that sort of situation may try to recollect all the complicated jargons of fire and emergency training they had attended in the past, but will it work? It may, if the person can make the right choice. Does this mean that a simply laid out plan and procedure is the best practice? How many things can someone remember to do in emergency as a normal person.



    Preparedness for emergency comes from the very thought of imagination of the actual emergency situation and being honest to oneself about whether you have done or considered or opted right thing to do in case of an emergency.

    Do you know where to assemble if you have to evacuate your building? The second thought that can come to you, isn't it enough that I have escaped the building and didn't cause the company any hassle? The answer is NO, by actually making sure that you reach the assembly area safely, you are helping your responsible fire emergency warden to make sure that you are not trapped inside, that allows warden to communicate with the fire brigade personnel (in fire emergency situation) to intervene the building. Fire Brigade personnel's strategy to intervene the building varies depending upon whether someone is trapped inside or if everyone has evacuated safely to assembly area.

    By doing the right thing, you are possibly preventing a fire brigade personnel from risking his/her life. Preparing yourself for emergency just needs a conscientious thinking. A conscientious thinking is lot more effective then spending lot of money in emergency planning.


    The sequence of an evacuation can be divided into the following phases:

    • Detection
    • Decision
    • Alarm
    • Reaction
    • Movement and Transportation
