Trial Evacuations

Trial Evacuations should be conducted in a manner that affects the best possible training for building occupants, but with the least amount of disruption to business possible.

Trial Evacuations include:

  • A reminder six weeks prior to the building's evacuation due date, confirming authority to go ahead and acquiring any relevant information regarding changes to the building.

  • Liaison with the relevant on-site contacts to arrange the most appropriate time and date for the trial (if/where necessary).

  • Filing appropriate notification with the NZ Fire Service in accordance with legislation.

  • Attendance on site to prepare the building and its systems for activation.

  • Assessment of the site, taking into consideration any extraordinary circumstances, changes in the building or its tenancies.

  • Making contact with the relevant Emergency Services Communications Sections prior to evacuation.

  • Activation of the fire alarm and commencement of the trial evacuation

  • Observation of and review of the evacuation process. This includes timing the trial and noting procedural confidence in accordance with the protocols established in the NZFS Approved Evacuation Scheme.

  • Returning systems to normal polling status at the completion of the evacuation.

  • Conducting a Warden's post evacuation debrief and procedural review, making adjustments as necessary to ensure efficiency.
