With the release of our Fire Awareness in Education v2 Training course, we also developed an easy-to-understand document to help schools and other educational institutes in case of an emergency evacuation of the premises.
Our Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) form contains the necessary fields to provide schools with the details of the child/young person’s needs in the event of an evacuation. For example, if the pupil suffered from hearing difficulties and couldn’t hear the fire alarm, or follow instructions easily, this would need to be addressed on their PEEP with a solution to follow.
The PEEP will specify what type of assistance is agreed and how it is to be maintained to ensure the child’s continued safety and should include assistance required from the point of raising the alarm to exiting the building.
This form should be reviewed at least on an annual basis and when a significant change in circumstances of the building or pupil is identified.
You can download this, and many other valuable resources for education, on our Resources page:

With approximately 90,000 pupils a year having their learning disrupted due to damage from fires, it is down to school staff to ensure that the premises is evacuated as quickly and effectively as possible.
Our Fire Awareness in Education Training course is CPD Accredited and only takes 35 minutes to complete.
