Fire Safety Training and Education for High-Rise Building Management

 

www.HighRiseFireSafety.org

 

High-Rise buildings need to have properly trained management personnel in charge of procedures and specific responsibilities before the fire department arrives. Management must be properly trained to assist the fire department with Information about the buildings’ fire and life safety systems and have firm accountability of all occupants.

Most Fire and Building Codes defines a High-Rise as a building with occupied floorss 75 feet or higher above Fire Department access. High-rises present a specific challenge for emergency planning due to their size.

As and owner, tenant or property manager of a high-rise you are responsible for making sure all visitors, employees and tenants of the building understand fire safety and fire drill requirements. We offer many valuable resources for preparing for a high rise fire emergency.

Our emergency evacuation training presentations are designed so participants get the information they need in a format that is easy to understand and remember during an actual emergency.

We specialize in creating and reviewing emergency action plans and the specific training needed for the High-Rise Building Fire Safety Director, Floor Wardens, and Tenants.  Let us prepare you for and oversee your Code Required Evacuation Drills.
