Means of Escape: In case of a fire, it is important that all occupants are evacuated as quick as possible, which means the earliest possible alarm, escape routes always being kept clear, doors that are not lockable from the inside, clear signage as to where to go and sufficient light to get out safely. You will also need to know that everyone is out of the premises, so some form of register will be required. For help go to www.anchorhands.co.uk
