Senior Facilities Emergency Planning Guide: Assisted Living Evacuation Drills Mobile App
How does it work?
A fire or other emergency within your facility can pose unique problems for management, staff, residents, and the emergency crews that are responding to your facility. Experience dictates that a safe and successful response to an emergency situation is dependent upon thorough knowledge of emergency procedures. Staff and residents must rely upon their own knowledge, response practices and procedures to ensure their personal safety.
As written by the International Fire Code, all assisted living facilities must perform fire drills once per quarter, per shift. These fire drills are to include full evacuation drills a minimum of two times per daylight shift, per year, for a grand total of four times annually. The Senior Facilities Emergency Planning Guide: Assisted Living Evacuation Drills mobile app details evacuation drills for assisted living facilities. Always make sure you reference the very latest International Fire Code regulations.
