London fire evacuation plan - information. From £179.00

We have multi-service engineers and surveyors to save you multiple service visits. We have everything covered under one order.


A London evacuation plan, also known as (FEEP) is an exit plan with a written document which includes the action to be taken by all staff in the event of a fire and the arrangements for calling the fire brigade.


General Fire Notice For London small business properties, this could take the form of a simple fire action sign posted in positions in your communal areas where staff and relevant persons can read it and become familiar with its contents.


Staff Fire Notice for High fire risks or large properties in London will need a more detailed emergency evacuation plan, which takes account of the findings of the Fire risk assessment, where the staff could be at significantly higher risk in their location. In addition, notices giving clear
instructions of the routine to be followed in case of fire.


In certain cases, you should nominate persons to implement the fire action plan and give them adequate training in firefighting and evacuation procedures. The following items should be considered where appropriate for your London business.


  • Fire evacuation strategy
  • Action on discovering a fire
  • Action on hearing the fire alarm
  • Calling the fire brigade
  • Power/process isolation
  • Identification of key escape routes
  • Fire wardens/marshals
  • Places of assembly and roll call
  • Firefighting equipment provided
  • Training required
  • Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan
  • Liaison with emergency services

London Fire evacuation strategy


You need to consider how you will arrange the evacuation of the premises if there is a fire, your risk assessment, and the other fire precautions you have put in place.


Simultaneous Evacuation

In most premises, the evacuation if there is a fire will involve everyone reacting to the warning signal given when a fire is discovered, then making their way, using escape plans and getting people out of the building to a place of safety.
This is known as a simultaneous evacuation, and the sounding of the alarm over the fire warning system normally initiates it.


Vertical Phased Evacuation.

In some larger complexes or high-rise properties, emergency arrangements are designed to allow people not at immediate risk from a fire to delay evacuation.


It may be appropriate to start the evacuation by initially evacuating only the area closest to the fire and warning others to stand by. This is normally done by immediately evacuating the floor where the fire is located and the floor above. The other floors are then evacuated individually to avoid congestion on the escape routes. The rest of the people are then evacuated if necessary. The fire warning system should be able to give two distinctly different signals (warning and evacuation) or appropriate voice messages.


Horizontal phased evacuation in hospitals and care homes: the floor may be divided into several fire-resisting compartments, and the occupants are moved from the compartment involved in the fire to the adjacent compartment and, if required, to move again.


Depending on the fire situation, vertical evacuation may be necessary. Because this type of evacuation takes extra time, other fire precautions may be required, as below.

  • Voice alarm systems
  • Fire control points
  • Compartmentalization of the premises using fire-resisting construction
  • Sprinklers in buildings where the top floor is 30 meters or more above ground level

Staff Alarm Evacuation (Silent Alarm)

In some instances, it may not be appropriate for a general alarm to start immediate evacuation of London Cinemas and Theatres. This could be because of the number of people present and the need for the staff to put pre-arranged plans in place first for the safe evacuation of the premises into action.


In such circumstances, a staff alarm can be given by fire records, personal pagers, discreet sounders, or a coded phrase on a public address system. Following the staff alarm, a more general alarm signal can be given, and a simultaneous or phased evacuation can be started. The general alarm may be activated automatically if manual initiation has not occurred within a predetermined time.


Defend in Place

This strategy may be considered in London blocks of flats, each with a minimum 60-minute fire-resistant compartment. It may also be considered in hospitals or nursing homes, where patients are connected to life-supporting equipment and cannot be moved.


The concept allows the occupants to stay put and enable the fire service to extinguish the fire. They will initiate a full evacuation if the fire spreads and cannot be controlled. In the case of patients connected to life-supporting equipment, a decision has to be made about which option is the best: stay or move. Either way, the patient would be at serious risk.


You should only plan to use defend-in-place, phased evacuation schemes, or a staff alarm system after seeking the advice of a competent person and the fire and rescue service.


Action on hearing the fire alarm

Every person must sound the nearest fire alarm immediately upon discovering a fire. The plan should include the method of raising the alarm in case of fire.


The plan should instruct all personnel upon hearing the fire alarm to act following the agreed FEEP strategy, and if a fire warden’s scheme is in force, they, on hearing the alarm, should proceed to pre-determined positions to assist members of the public and staff
to leave the building by the nearest safe route.


Lifts and escalators should not be used due to possible electrical failure unless they are part of a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan.
Personnel should not re-enter the building except for the Fire Team.


Calling the fire brigade

The Fire Service should also be informed immediately, either by the switchboard operator or the person discovering the fire, depending on the conditions:

  • Work Time—The Switchboard operator should be familiar with the emergency evacuation plan and ensure necessary extensions are switched through when the switchboard is unattended.
  • Other Times—The Remaining Staff (Cleaners, caretakers, etc.) should also be familiar with the procedure. In any case, the most senior official should ensure the Fire Service has been called.

Power/process isolation

Close–down Procedure—Adopt your own ‘Close-down’ procedure as appropriate. Identification of key escape routes In premises where members of the public or persons unfamiliar with the layout of the premises are present, means should be available to identify the key escape routes. They could include schematic drawings and, most importantly, emergency escape and exit signs.


The London Fire Evacuation Plan Certificate is returned between 24 and 48 hours after a site visit. It is sent via email only in PDF format.

*Please note. Certification will not be released until payment has been received unless you are an existing account customer or have been pre-approved.


Key Info for Clients

  • Payment Terms: Orders below £300 must be paid in advance.
  • Cancellation Policy: You can cancel up to 48 hours before your scheduled visit for a full refund. Cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance are non-refundable, as we've allocated engineers and resources to your job.
  • Access Requirements: Engineers must have access to the premises at the scheduled time. If access is denied or no one is available to grant entry, full payment for the service is required to cover allocated resources.
  • Appointment Times: Booking times are guide times (AM/PM) due to potential London transport delays and job extensions. We aim to meet these times and will communicate any necessary adjustments.

Please ensure availability for engineer access and note that while we strive to adhere to scheduled times, flexibility helps us maintain service quality.
