Healthcare buildings have specific fire design requirements as occupants may not be able to respond and make their way to safety without staff assistance. Every occupant type must be addressed specifically. The integration of the fire safety design with the staff emergency response strategy is key.
MSA have adopted a performance based approach to the existing and new Rehabilitation hospital in Dun Laoghaire to achieve an optimum design.
MSA provided fire and evacuation training for staff on-site to enable these strategies be implemented correctly. These Emergency management plans are vital to the success of the evacuation of the hospital in an emergency.
