When an emergency evacuation plan has been constructed in accordance with Australian standards, it will follow a similar format to most other businesses. The exact format will change for every business, but here is what to expect in the event of an emergency.

1. An emergency alarm sounds – most buildings will have distinct alarms for different threats. Make sure you are aware of what each alarm means to respond accordingly.

2. Don’t panic – prepare to leave the building when you hear the alarm

3. If the power has been interrupted, emergency lights will kick in. You can follow these lights and exit signs through the building as long as your path is unobstructed.

4. Leave personal items in the building – your priority is to move to the safe area

5. Gather at the emergency evacuation point and participate in a roll call to ensure everyone has exited the building – wait for the emergency services to arrive and contain the threat
