Hotel Guest – Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP)
We want to ensure that you are able to leave the building safely in the event of a fire or other emergency.
We understand that many people with disabilities will be able to leave the building unaided; however, some may require assistance.
Therefore, we would like to offer you the opportunity to have a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) in order to ensure that you can leave the building safely in the event of an emergency.
The plan will explain what options you wish to take in the event of a fire evacuation. The plan will also state who is designated to assist you in your evacuation should you require this. The Front Office Manager, in full consultation with you, will compile your PEEP.
Our team members have been trained and will work with you to find the best solution. Please advise us as soon as possible if you do require a PEEP and we will arrange a meeting with you to discuss it.
You will receive a copy of your PEEP, which will also be given to those people who are part of your evacuation plan. The Fire Coordinator will also receive a copy and will pass it on to the Fire & Rescue Service if necessary. If you do not request a PEEP, we will accept that you are able to make your own way out unaided. We will not expect you to make any extraordinary effort to escape at any other time.
If you have a temporary condition that may impede your evacuation, such as pregnancy, please inform us if you feel you need assistance. If your disability does not normally affect your day to day life but might be a problem in an evacuation situation (i.e. asthma), please inform us so that we can arrange suitable assistance.
