9 Why organize for fire emergencies ? RESTRICTEDDangerous operational practicesCombustible & smoke producing materialsIndecisive, delay & lack of responsibilitiesWhy organise for fire emergencies? Although every building is constructed and designed to meet certain minimum standard of fire safety, a fire emergency plan is needed for the following reasons :-Dangerous operational practice - eg. wedged open fire doors, obstructed means of egress, locked exit doors, etc. This practices are normally caused by human. Irresponsible people after opening the fire door do not close it which allow fire and smoke to spread in the event of f ire. Occupants in the building due to shortage of storage area in their premises, placed their goods along escape routes causing obstruction. Occupants locked the exit doors due to security reasons and do not know the consequence.-Combustible and smoke producing - Nowaday, there are many combustible materials such as plastic chairs, tables, papers found in commercial and office buildings. This kind of materials causes rapid spread of fire and also produces smoke and highly toxic gases.-Indecisive, delay and unawareness of responsibilities in case of fire. Occupants tends to push responsibilities to one another. As a result, it cause a delay and allow the fire hazard to remain and no action taken to remove fire hazards.1-33RESTRICTED

As such, a fire emergency plan is needed to :-avoid panic-evacuate safety and orderly-tackle incipient fires with first aid fire-fighting equipment such as fire extinguishers, hosereel, etc. but do not put yourself at risk.-provide good information and assistance to firefighters. The layout plan of the building, type of storages and contact numbers of key officers can be found in the Fire Emergency Plan.
