Emergency plan

An emergency plan is an important safety tool for housing associations and residential properties

An emergency plan must be drawn up for residential buildings with at least three residential departments. The responsibility for emergency planning lies with the supervisory board of the residential real estate.

The emergency plan should:

  • present the dangers and risks associated with the building;
  • provide guidelines for preventing accidents;
  • provide instructions for acting in the event of a hazardous situation.

An important guideline in the emergency plan

One of the most important guidelines in the emergency plan concerns how to operate in a fire. It is necessary to inform the residents on how to act when there is a fire in their own home or when the fire is in a neighbouring apartment.

Do not evacuate to a smoky stairwell, it is life-threatening.
