Life Safety Plans & Facility Mapping

Many facilities implement a variety of life-safety equipment and services in the name of protecting the building and its occupants in the case of an emergency. These systems can range from tornado warning systems, eye-wash stations, first aid kits, AED units, fire extinguishers, safe-travel lanes, and many other types of life-safety focused systems and services. The big question is – are you and your staff aware of which systems are in place, where they are located, and how they are expected to behave in an emergency? Have you properly identified and marked your facilities exit pathways to the standards of OSHA? Have you deployed enough fire extinguishers to comply with local and state codes? Have your employees been properly trained in the proper operation of AED units or in who the appropriate staff is to notify in the event that one needs to be used? The answers to these questions all begin at the same place – life safety plans and facility mapping.

Cline Fire will produce electronic CAD files of your building and then compile layouts identifying the current layout of all your facilities life-safety systems. We will lead your organization through the process of creating facility maps identifying proper exit routes, tornado and other inclement weather shelter-in-place plans, and fire drill plans and procedures. All of this information will be stored in a single location for easy access when changes or updates are needed, making transitions between staff easy and clear.

According to local and state codes, OSHA, NFPA 101, and many other NFPA standards, you are responsible for producing and maintaining a variety of different emergency action plans. We help make the process easy to understand, easy to navigate, and easy to stay in compliance.
