No fire safety strategy is complete without the final part of the plan – escaping fire safely. In order to escape a fire, being prepared, having a plan, and practicing that plan are essential to successfully getting out. Craft your plan by considering your business’ and home’s particular layout and members. Opticom also offers and advice on the best escape means like  fire escape route, escape chutes, fire  escape ladders and fire evacuation procedures.

Fire Safety Training

In Kenya, it’s a legal requirement for certain members of staff to be trained in fire safety procedures – becoming your environment’s designated fire wardens as a result. The person trained should have a clear understanding of the overall duties and responsibilities they have as a fire warden. This will include what action they should take on the discovery of a fire, know the difference between different fire classes, which extinguisher to use for which fire and what the evacuation procedure is.

However, we encourage that all team and family members be trained to ensure that they know what to do in the event that a fire breaks out.  Opticom’s qualified fire safety trainers train on different topics including but not limited to; understanding the fire triangle, discovering a fire, types of fires, types of extinguishing agents, identification of which fire extinguishers to use and how to use a fire extinguisher. The training is designed to be as practical as possible to ensure that all bases are covered.

Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting is part of the fire safety provision of a building and cannot be ignored. The lighting provides a minimum level of illumination to enable the safe exit of the building in the event that normal lighting supplies fail. Following a mains fail or circuit fault, luminaires provide an instant light source for the escape routes and open areas to achieve the minimum level of illumination for a defined minimum period.

There are three main aspects of emergency escape lighting which are; escape route lighting, open area/anti-panic area lighting and high-risk task area lighting.

The above distinctions serve to emphasise the role of emergency escape lighting in fire safety and how it is adapted and applied, on a case by case basis, according to the specific use and occupancy levels of a particular building and / or areas within it. Opticom provides solutions that are compliant with the relevant British Safety Standards.
