An evacuation plan spells out what one should do in an emergency situation. A systematic evacuation plan helps to efficiently and safely get people away from an area where there is an imminent threat, ongoing threat, or a hazard to lives or property. As the image suggests, there are three stages of evacuation, immediate evacuation, lateral evacuation, and partial evacuation. A colored evacuation plan is a diagram showing the safest emergency exit routes from a home or building. Instead of creating an evacuation plan from scratch, one should try EdrawMax’s pre-defined template to design a colored evacuation plan. The evacuation plan template can be printed or shared among peers so that at the time of any emergency, everyone is well-versed in the evacuation plan of the building.
