Evacuation alarms for industrial complex
How does the industrial plants in your area handle plant evacuations, ie Alarms? Do they have a fire brigade or emergency response team?
I am the fire chief at my power plant. Our plant is Very Large, with 440 permenment employees and 2500 contractors. Right now we have 5 alarms, or tones. This seems to be too many for people to remember.
I believe 3 would be succificient. These 3 would be for Inside Safe Refuge, (Weather, fire in Power House, etc) Outside Safe Refuge (Fire, bomb threat, chemcial leak)and an All Clear alarm or tone. We have a PA system to give further instructions.
I have been tasked with researching what other industries are doing.
Please tell me what you have and what are your thoughts.
Thanks in advance
