Evacuation Co-ordination Instruction



Evacuation Co-Ordinator (Chief Warden) and Persons to carry out evacuation co-ordination procedures


One of the requirements of the BFSR 2008 is the appointment of an Evacuation Co-ordinator (Chief Warden) and persons to carry out evacuation procedures (Wardens). The evacuation co-ordinator is appointed by the building Emergency Planning Committee and should be appointed to a person that meets the following criteria;

·             Availability – the appointee should be available predominately onsite at most times


·             Contactibility -  the appointee should be easily contactable at most times


·             Suitability – the appointee should possess the ability to perform the duties required as an evacuation co-ordinator


Once an evacuation co-ordinator and persons to carry out evacuation co-ordination procedures have been selected and appointed they must be trained in evacuation co-ordination instructions within one month of being appointed and ongoing training should be conducted at an interval no longer than one year from then on.

The evacuation co-ordinator, with the assistance of the buildings wardens, is responsible for ensuring that the evacuation co-ordination procedures are enacted and followed during an emergency evacuation and that occupants are evacuated safety by managing the emergency and evacuation utilising the procedures and instructions detailed within the buildings fire and evacuation plan.
Furthermore, the evacuation co-ordinator is responsible to ensure the evacuation co-ordination procedures remain valid and effective and that the emergency control organisation resources and personnel are adequate to successfully manage emergencies and evacuations within the facility.
Fire Safety Compliance (QLD) Pty Ltd can provide professional training by experienced trainers with years of experience in the fire safety industry to the persons to carry out evacuation co-ordination procedures within a facility. This training includes the provision of evacuation co-ordination instructions as detailed in the building fire & evacuation plan.
High occupancy buildings require these instructions to be given by a trained Fire Safety Advisor (FSA) or Registered Training Organisation (RTO). Fire Safety Compliance (QLD) can facilitate this so as to provide regulatory compliance with the BFSR 2008.
Fire Safety Compliance (QLD) Pty Ltd  will provide at the end of each training session the required records of training provision as required and audited by the Queensland Fire & Rescue Service as the regulator to be retained onsite with your fire safety records, as well as retain copies off site to ensure complete compliance.
Training packages will be tailored to meet the needs of the individual facility and its fire and evacuation plan meeting the requirements of the QFRS as regulator.
