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.
2. What is Fire Escape Plan Drawing
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.
3. How to Create a Fire Escape Plan
Step 1: Pick a location. Determine the drawing area. If the structure already exists, determine how much of it to sketch (a room, a floor, or the full structure). If the structure does not yet exist, come up with design ideas depending on the size and shape of the site.
Step 2: Measure everything. If the structure already exists, take measurements of the walls, doors, and relevant furnishings to ensure that the floor plan is accurate. If you're designing a layout for a completely new region, make sure the overall area will fit where it'll be erected. It's a good idea to look at buildings in similar places to get a sense of how much this floor plan will cost.
Step 3: Make a wall. Add walls to each of the building's rooms, making sure they're drawn to scale.
Step 4: Include architectural details. Begin by putting in the non-removable components, such as doors and windows, as well as the refrigerator, dishwasher, dryer, and other vital appliances that must be installed in a precise area.
Step 5: Fill in the gaps with furniture. If the floor plan allows it, add furnishings.
