We make tactical fire plans for buildings!

Firewize helps building owners, agents of owners and occupiers of buildings to develop and publish tactical fire plans for buildings. A tactical fire plan is a scale drawing showing the location of fire safety systems, equipment and building services.

A tactical fire plans is a basic building floor plan and shows the location of active and passive fire safety equipment within the building, as well as the path to required exits. These plans are in the form of schematic drawings, colour coded, colour fast, protected against physical damage, and prepared for use by the fire brigade and first responders during an emergency.

Fire Hydrant System Block Plan

A tactical fire plan or plans must contain information for use by attending emergency services such as the fire brigade. These plans should be readily available to first responders. A tactical fire plan should be regularly reviewed and maintained to ensure it is accurate and reflects any changes within the building. These changes include structural changes, occupancy changes or a significant change in any of the following;

  1. the designated access point, typically signified by an external warning device or bell;
  2. the location of electrical switchboards, power generation, generators, transformers substations and related electrical (power) isolation points;
  3. fire compartments and/or smoke compartments;
  4. fuel sources or other hazardous materials or flammable liquids or metals;
  5. the location of any material safety data sheets that apply to the building;
  6. the location of the fire hydrant system block plan, water supply location(s), booster connections, feed hydrant location, fire pump-set(s), the location of each fire hydrant landing valves and isolating valves.
  7. the location of the fire sprinkler control valve assembly & block plan, water supply location(s), fire pump-set(s), booster connection, and ancillary control valve locations.
  8. the location of the fire detection and alarm system control and indicating equipment ("FDCIE"), Alarm Signalling Equipment ("ASE"), Occupant Warning System (where installed) and associated zone block diagrams.
  9. the location (where installed) of the emergency warning system and intercommunication system
  10. the location of a fire fan control panel (if fitted).

In addition, a Fire Control Centre or Fire Control Room will also likely have a copy of the schematic diagrams of the fire hydrant system, automatic fire sprinkler system, fire detection & alarm system, electrical systems and mechanical services for the building.
