Emergency Response Plan
Each church should have an Emergency Response Plan to enable rapid safe evacuation of the building in the event of an emergency. Copies of the plan should be displayed on notice boards and employees/voluntary workers should be provided with a copy as part of their induction. The plan should include a plan of the property’s layout showing location of exits, meeting points and fire‐fighting equipment.
The plan needs to be reviewed annually or when there are any alterations to the buildings or the use of those buildings.
