Fire safety training in aged healthcare facilities
Fire & Safety, Fire Training, Fire Safety Training
When identifying the best fire protection solutions for the aged healthcare sector, the evacuation of mobility restricted residents and the protection of vital medical equipment are just two key considerations.
Fire & Safety
Although it is not always possible to prevent a fire, healthcare facilities must be adequately prepared by having the correct fire protection systems and equipment in place. Furthermore, owners and managers must recognise the importance of investing in staff fire safety training.
When a fire breaks out, the highest priority is to move residents and staff out of harm’s way. Having trained staff should provide the best possibility for this to happen in a methodical and efficient manner. Facility managers must ensure that fire safety education is provided to all employees to build an understanding of what systems are installed on the premises, how to use the fire protection equipment and what evacuation procedures are in place.
