The Emergency Evacuation Training Dummy
Care homes and other health care settings which house large numbers of vulnerable people are required by law to have an emergency evacuation plan - in Australia, care homes must have an Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) for every resident.
Excerpt from the NSW Care Home Evacuation Guide - Paragraph 6.11
'To ensure that a facility’s emergency plan remains current and staff are able to implement designated roles, an emergency exercise to practice and test arrangements should be held annually'.
Obviously, a plan is only good if people are confident in their abilities to carry it out successfully. Using manikins for emergency evacuation training lets teams try different scenarios so that they can be sure that in a real fire, all staff members would be prepared to move someone safely with minimal risk.
Speed of rescue is an important consideration. It would be relatively easy to move just one person - but if there are 5-6 beds on any given ward or fire block, could your team evacuate everyone safely?
