ANNUAL FIRE DRILLS
Fire Drills must be held annually, as mandated by the Los Angeles Fire Department. Our unique formula is proven to streamline your drill evacuation process and maximize communication, organization, and confidence among your staff and occupants. By breaking down the chain of command into small, manageable groups, we’ll help you get out fast and get out safe. We also handle the written tenant notices, event scheduling, and organize the required pre-drill meeting for your Essential Building Personnel and Floor Wardens.
- General Population
- Floor Wardens & Monitors
- Safety Coordinators
- Parking Attendants
- Tenant Notices and Compliance Packet
We prepare legal notification for tenants along with simple instructions for the Fire Safety Director to appoint Floor Wardens (per Ordinance #180648). Additionally we provide a tenant packet that covers all preparation aspects of your fire drill. When drill day arrives you will be ready to get out fast and get out safe.
