FIRE SAFETY

 

June 2019


The manager has overall responsibility for the fire drill and evacuation procedures. These are carried out
and recorded termly. These drills will occur at different times of the day and on different days to ensure
evacuations are possible under different circumstances and all children and staff participate in the
rehearsals.

Registration

An accurate record of all staff and children present in the building must be kept at all times and
children/staff must be marked in and out on arrival and departure. An accurate record of visitors must
be kept in the visitor’s book. These records must be taken out along with the register and emergency
contacts list in the event of a fire.

No smoking policy

The nursery operates a strict no smoking policy – please see this separate policy for details.

Fire drill procedure

On discovering a fire:
• Calmly raise the alarm by pressing the fire alarm button on one of the red alarm boxes on the wall
at a Fire Exit.

door, garden gates and out to the Parking area.
• Close all doors behind you wherever possible
• Babies and Toddlers are to use the evacuation trolleys provided to exit the building with the
children
• If it is dark and staff vision is impaired then the emergency lighting will show you where the fire
exits are.
• For staff or children that have a hearing impairment a red flag is to be waved to alert them of a
fire
