Emergency Procedures

The Hotel has a comprehensive fire evacuation plan, which is approved by the Fire Brigade. All the Hotel Staff are regularly trained in all aspects of the plan and in actual firefighting. The Hotel also has a terrorist attack/bomb threat/suspect package procedure in which staff are also regularly trained and tested in training exercises.

 

 

 

 

A: - FIRE

 

1.       On the initial activation of the fire alarm, a designated fire team will attend the zone indicated and investigate. The alarm will be muted.

2.       If it is a false alarm or something of a minor nature, such as a discarded cigarette in a waste bin, the investigation team will deal with it there and then and the alarm will be reset.

3.       If it is more serious and becomes necessary to evacuate the Hotel, the fire alarm system will be re-activated. The continuous sounding of the alarm will indicate to EVERYONE that the Hotel is being evacuated.

4.       Staff will control the evacuation by indicating the fire exits to be used and directing people to the assembly point at the St James Church, Sussex Gardens.

 

 

 

B: - OTHER THREATS

 

1.       In the event of a terrorist attack/bomb threat/suspect package, the matter will be dealt with, as appropriate to the circumstances, by Management and the in-house Security Department. Police assistance will automatically be sought.

2.       If evacuation becomes necessary, the fire evacuation plan as outlined in A (3 & 4) above will be followed.
