Create Hotel or Hospitality Industry Fire Safety and Evacuation Plan

Edited by Hotelier, Rushell, Eng

Hello and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today, we will discuss guest fire safety and evacuation plans for hotels. We'll talk about where they should be posted and what kind of information should be on them. As a note, this type of plan may be required by the ordinance, so you should find out if your area has such an ordinance and prepare your plan according to these types of guidelines that may be supplied by your fire department or local officials. In case it is not, and we do have to prepare our own building's evacuation plan, this tutorial may be of some assistance.

Steps

  1. 1
    Generally, we will find the guest fire safety and evacuation plan on the back or on the inside of each guest room door
    .
    These are locations that are easily seen by our guests. Our staff will have alternative plans, but for the guest, the back of each hotel room door will be widely seen. It should be posted at eye level. We will need to prepare a plan specifically for each guest room.

    We will need some information on these plans, and we can begin with a floor plan

    Our floor plans will also need to mark the current location

    As well, it should note the location of fire safety materials, such as blankets, fire extinguishers or hoses

    Several of these items, such as emergency exits and fire safety materials, may be designated by the use of icons
    .

    Since we will have icons on our floor plan, in one corner we should include a Legend
    .
    A Legend will explain what the icon means.

    For example, if we have two boxes, one may have a happy face that stands for fire extinguishers
    .

    One box could have a circle for emergency exits
    .
    The guest knows that when they look on the floor plan, whenever they see the smiley face in a box, that is the location of a fire extinguisher.

    Finally, on our safety and evacuation plan, we can include some safety language
    .
    This would be general information about fire safety and evacuation. It could be as simple as, "In case of a fire, do not use the elevator. Only use the stairs." These can include types of general safety information that can be applicable in a wide variety of situations if necessary.
