EvacFlag™

An Emergency Communication Flag System

The EvacFlag™is acommunication device, for Smarter, Quicker and Safer evacuations.

The EvacFlag™ provides an easy to use, systematic form of communication, advising trained staff a room has been checked and cleared of occupants.

The EvacFlag™ is designed to help organisations manage an evacuation in their building.

The EvacFlag™ is easy to use and provides a clear, consistent method to identify when a room has been searched and cleared of occupants. It reduces the potential of staff, patients and visitors from being missed.

The EvacFlag™ provides clear communication to trained staff and rescuers, clearly indicating the status of each room.
The Problem:

During an emergency evacuation drill, unnecessary double checking of rooms can increase the risk and the time it takes for everyone to get to safety.


The Accountability:

Employers are accountable for ensuring that all personnel are evacuated safely and quickly during an emergency and no one is left behind by accident. 



The Solution:

The EvacFlag™ provides an easy to use, systematic form of communication, advising trained staff a room has been checked and cleared of occupants in an evacuation.

The EvacFlag™ is ideal for organisations that have an evacuation plan requiring searches of multiple rooms in the event of a bomb threat or fire evacuation.

Function

  • To provide a clear, consistent method to identify when a room has been searched and cleared of any occupants at the time of the search. Reducing the potential of staff, patients/ clients or visitors being missed.
  • Systematic and time efficient, the EvacFlag™ clearly indicates rooms that have been searched.
  • As a permanent fixture, it does not need to be retrieved.
  • Can be seen and understood in any language once trained.
  • To eliminate unnecessary multiple searching of the same room.
  • When in use and activated it clearly indicates rooms that have been searched, staff can then focus on rooms not yet searched, significantly reducing the risk of individuals and rooms being missed.
  • Rooms are easily identifiable to all that pass by that the room is deemed all clear.
  • Rooms where the EvacFlag™ have not been activated highlight the risk that room has been missed.
  • Can be seen in low light environment and reflective by torchlight.
  • Positioned at floor level increases visibility in dense smoke-filled corridor.
  • Can be used in practice emergency drills to enforce correct evacuation procedure, regular fire/ evacuation drills create a familiarity/ second nature process in the event of a true evacuation.
  • The EvacFlag™ is ideal for organizations that have a fire evacuation plan requiring multiple rooms to be searched in the event of a fire or emergency response.

  • Once activated, rescuers and trained staff can potentially view multiple EvacFlags™ from a distance, negating the need to physically walk back up the corridor and research each room.
  • Sleek design with minimal horizontal surfaces minimising dust build up and cleaning requirements.
  • The flag when activated will protrude a maximum 130mm from the wall and if touched, the fine polyester fabric simply folds with no resistance.
