Fire Signage

Your fire assembly point should be far enough away from the building to avoid interference with the fire brigade and danger from falling debris caused by the fire. This means it needs to be clearly signposted. You may also need to take into consideration the type of occupants who will need to evacuate the building in the event of fire, making sure that the Fire Assembly Point is suitable for the young, old or disabled.

The number and type of fire exit signs you need comes down to how easily occupants would be able to find their way out of the building in the event of fire, especially if they’re not familiar with the layout. You may need a series of these green directional signs leading occupants along the shortest route to escape with arrows indicating which way to go.
