Part 1: What is Fire Evacuation Plan?

Fire evacuation plans are similar to floor plans, but differ in one key aspect: they are used to point out all of the fire exits in a structure, room, or floor. A fire evacuation plan will have a scaled drawing of the structure, room, or floor - typically a simple outline of the rooms and a few other key points of interests. The fire exits will then be clearly marked on the diagram, usually in colour.

A fire evacuation plan ensures that occupants or visitors of the structure, room or floor are well-informed about the emergency fire exits, and what path they may take to the closest one.
