Practice Makes Perfect

The best laid FM plans can go awry if occupants are not made aware of proper procedures during an emergency situation. One good way to prepare for the worst is to hold regularly scheduled safety drills. Make sure to cover key areas such as communication channels, escape routes, emergency signage, and participation to make sure everyone is on the same page and knows the right procedures to follow should the worst happen.

Another strategy that can prove effective is to hold impromptu exercises that simulate real events – by troubleshooting your facility’s response to these mock emergencies, you can find weak spots and holes in your preparation playbook.
