  1. I am seeking the view of the forum regarding the actions to be taken by visitors in the event of a fire alarm activation in a Care or Nursing Home. We provide fire safety training for a number of care homes in our local area and teach that (pending the confirmation of a fire), conventional 'progressive horizontal' process is undertaken by staff for residents. However, we urge that guests and other visitors vacate the premises immediately on hearing the fire alarm and wait on the assembly point for further guidance. One of our homes is adamant that guest and visitors should remain where they are and await guidance from staff. Personally, I can se no reason why they shouldn't evacuate immediately and I really don't want to teach their staff a strategy that I fundamentally disagree with. I cant find any official guidance, but I would very much value forum members view on the matter. Mike
