The Civil Defence role in fire evacuation is to ensure that the means of escape in case of fire for all people who may be in a building is both adequate and reasonable.
It is your responsibility to provide a fire safety risk assessment that includes an emergency evacuation plan for all people likely to be in the premises including People of Determination.
Such an evacuation plan should not rely upon the intervention of the Civil Defence to make it work.
We can supply a range of evacuation chairs (manual and powered) and specialised training in how to correctly use your current or new equipment.
