All businesses should carry out a fire evacuation drill at least once a year, preferably twice.
Although your fire drill can be managed by your designated ‘Responsible Person’ or Fire Safety Manager, we recommend enlisting expert help from time to time.
Carrying out an an organised fire evacuation drill in this way is especially beneficial to larger organisations, or premises with vulnerable residents.
