Fire Evacuation Plans for the Education Sector

Silver Bear specialise in the design of Emergency Fire Evacuation Plans for schools, colleges, Universities and the education sector.

In the event of a fire, there is usually no time to stop and think of the best thing to do. Half a minute after the smoke alarm goes off; an entire floor of your school could be filled with dense smoke.

Fire Evacuation Plans for the education sector are lifesaving preparedness tools and provide a critical role in the safe evacuation of a building in the event of an emergency.

School Evacuation Plan

School Lockdown Plans

Today, all schools should consider the need for robust and tested school lockdown procedures. Lockdown procedures should be seen as a sensible and proportionate response to any external or internal incident which has the potential to pose a threat to the safety of staff and pupils in the school.

Our plans are designed to support your existing lockdown procedures. They include clear information on what to do on the initial “Lockdown” alert and any subsequent “Full Lockdown” alert.

A clear plan of the school showing external access points and external and internal doors which will need to be locked, depending upon the threat level to secure and ensure the safety of pupils and staff.


Evacuation Plans for Schools

Is the Evacuation Plan for your school up to date? Do you even have one?

Fire evacuation plans for schools that are easy to read, understand and act upon in an emergency, ensure that you are better prepared and compliant.

All schools must manage any fire risk on their premises. Accidental fires can catch people unawares and without an Emergency Evacuation Plan you are placing the lives of everybody in your school in jeopardy.

Make sure you, and those you are responsible for, know how to evacuate in the event of a fire.
