Area Of Refuge Requirements
While no one wants to think about an emergency in their building, preparation for emergencies is still vital. Not only is it the right thing to do, but if you're a business or building owner, you have legal requirements you must meet to protect people inside your building. You probably already know it's vital to have routes for people to evacuate during an emergency, but what about people who aren't able to leave as easily?
In case of a fire or other emergency evacuation, some people may not be able to safely evacuate. An area of refuge inside existing buildings provides accessible means for people to remain temporarily until they can receive rescue assistance.`
Having an accessible route for people inside the building to leave is critical. Still, not everyone can evacuate on their own. Very young children, people in wheelchairs, and those with other medical needs may need to wait for rescue assistance. By setting up an area of refuge, you'll create a place for all building occupants to wait safely.
