  1. FireSafety

  2. At the conclusion of this training, the trainees should be able to: Discuss how to protect patients, personnel, visitors and property from fire and smoke Verbalize the roles and responsibilities of personnel at the fire’s point of origin and away from the fire’s point of origin Discuss the functioning of the fire alarm systems Verbalize how to prepare for building evacuation Identify and location and proper use of equipment for evacuating and transporting patients to areas of refuge Discuss the building compartmentalization procedures for containing smoke and fire Discuss the routine procedures for emergency and incident reporting Objectives

  3. What is Fire Safety? Fire Safety is the protection of patients, staff members, visitors, and property from fire and the product of combustion (smoke) in accordance with all applicable required structural features of fire protection addressed in the Life Safety Code. Overview

  4. Background A fire needs fuel, oxygen and heat to thrive. Examples of fuel : paper, wood, trash, decorations, egg crate mattresses, linens and lab chemicals Examples of oxygen : ventilators, in-room oxygen sources, and portable oxygen tanks Examples of Heat : frayed cords, lasers, lit cigarettes, and overloaded plugs

  5. Policy #8613.1300 : Fire Safety Plan To establish a fire plan that addresses appropriate employee, staff, volunteer, and non-staff training, response and evaluation. All employees, volunteers, students, physicians and contract staff are responsible for the safe implementation of this plan.

  6. FireSafety : General Instructions • Know your and responsibility at the fire’s point of origin and away from the fire’s point of origin • Know the location of the nearest fire alarm • Know the emergency number to dial (Dial x1000) • Know the location of fire extinguishers and how to use them • Know the location of all exits • Keep telephone lines clear for fire control • Do not use elevators • Make sure all fire, corridor and room doors are closed • Clear all corridors and exits of unnecessary traffic and obstructions

  7. In Case of Fire, RACE! • R – RESCUE • Rescue all persons in immediate danger of the vicinity of fire/smoke. Move to the next SMOKE COMPARTMENT, then move to the outside using EXTERNAL EXITS. This is usually at the direction of the Fire Department. • A – ALARM • Pull the fire alarm and dial x1000 to give the exact location and nature of the fire (ex: electrical fire). PBX verifies that the Fire Department received the alarm from the outside monitoring company and notifies employees, the Fire Department, engineering and security. CODE RED is announced overhead 3 times.

  8. In Case of Fire, RACE! • C – CONTAIN • Close all windows and doors. Ensure a positive catch. • Never open a closed door before touching it with the back of your hand. If it feels hot, DO NOT OPEN IT! • If possible, turn off all equipment in the room. After verifying patients have been removed from oxygen, turn off oxygen. • E – EVACUATE/EXTINGUISH • Evacuate patients, visitors and personnel to safe area. This must be beyond a smoke partition door from location of fire. Be aware of location of stairwells for evacuation plan. • Extinguish the fire if safe to do so. If not, close door to room to contain the fire until the Fire Department arrives.

  9. The Fire Extinguisher • How to Operate the Fire Extinguisher (PASS) • P – PULL • Pull out the safety pin • A – Aim • Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire (stand 10 feet away) • S – Squeeze • Squeeze the handle. Fire extinguishers only last for about 8-12 seconds • S – Sweep • Sweep the nozzle from side to side

  10. Important Locations • Important Locations to Know • Closest fire alarm pull • Fire alarm pulls are located at each exit and each stairway in the Tower • Evacuation route • Fire doors/walls and where the next safe fire zone is located • Next safety fire zone • Smoke compartments • Fire sprinklers • Fire sprinklers are not life –saving devices. Their purpose is to save the building.

  11. Facility Conditions • Important Facility Conditions to Maintain • Keep a 3-foot clearance around all emergency exits, fire-fighting equipment, fire alarm pull stations, and electrical panels. • Never put door wedges under corridor doors at any time. • Keep doors closed unless they are controlled by an electromagnetic system. • Keep all corridors and exits clear. Place beds and equipment on one side of the hallway at all times. • Keep telephone lines clear for fire control. • CHSB is a non-smoking campus except for Behavioral Health Unit patients.

  12. Fire Drills : Policy #8460.2102 • Fire Drill Policy : • ALL employees are required to participate in fire drills. • Fire drills are conducted in each area once per shift per quarter. Some areas are drilled more or less than others. Examples : Fire drill outside areas such as the CMP and the MOB are required once per year. Laboratory is drilled once a month. • Areas above, below or adjacent to the drill must respond to the drill. They are also evaluated as part of the drill.
