Personal emergency evacuation plan
The latest Australian Standards for Planning for Emergencies in Facilities recommends that occupants requiring assistance to evacuate in an emergency should have a personal emergency evacuation plan (PEEP).
A PEEP is a practical measure to ensure appropriate actions are taken for an individual in the event of an emergency, where that person requires additional or specific assistance to evacuate a building or premises. Having a PEEP is not mandatory but highly recommended for people who may need assistance in the event of an emergency.
School leaders should ensure that their staff with disability know that they can prepare a PEEP if they want to.
