The fire precautions and emergency procedures in the Home.

The Home has a fully state of the art addressable fire alarm system installed with sprinklers in all areas including bedrooms with fire exit notices and fire emergency instruction notices displayed at strategic points throughout the Home as advised by the local Fire Department. The home is also fitted with an emergency evacuation lift which will continue to operate even in an emergency. Staff are instructed during induction and thereafter at 3-6 monthly intervals as to the fire procedures in the Home.

This includes: Use of fire appliances /Evacuation/Muster points/Raising the alarms. A fire exercise is carried out weekly on the day shift and a full fire drill is conducted yearly which involves evacuation of the Home. Night staff attend regular training. Residents are informed of the fire procedures during admission. Details are also in their Service User Guide.

A risk assessment has been undertaken with each resident as to their needs in the event of a fire in the Home. This is reviewed monthly or as required.

A qualified fire extinguisher maintenance engineer will check all fire fighting equipment annually (or sooner as required).

Carlton House endeavours to ensure all furniture, fixtures and fittings must be made of fire resistant or fire retardant fabrics and materials.
