An evacuation plan spells out what one should do in an emergency. A systematic evacuation plan for any particular site 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 several stages of evacuation, immediate evacuation, lateral evacuation, and partial evacuation. An evacuation site 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 site. The evacuation site 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.
