Emergency Action Plan for fire in high rise buildings

The fire that broke out on New Year’s Eve at the 60 storey Dubai mixed development high rise called ‘Address Downtown’, is an eye opener for Developers and Management Corporations of condominium properties in Sri Lanka to pay more attention towards the risk of fire and the need to have an emergency action plan for such unexpected situations.

Most developers and managers of high rise buildings in Sri Lanka pay little attention to risks of fire and there are few ( if at all) that have emergency action plans.

I have attached for the information of readers a leaflet issued by the National Fire Protection Association of USA, recommending steps that can be taken in office high rise buildings. These can be used as guidelines by Developers, Managers and occupants of local high rise buildings to develop similar emergency action plans.

Don’t let your dreams go up in smoke – practice fire safety.”  ~Author Unknown
