Query re fire assembly point sign

Can anyone offer any advice? We now have to assemble during an evacuation down the road from our office building on a tarmac area outside a flat.  The only place visible from the front of the building on which to put the assembly point sign at a visible height, was on the lamp post but because there is already a traffic sign on the lamp post the County Council won't permit it.  Our building managing agent say a sign in the lobby pointing to the direction of the assembly point will suffice but I'm not convinced that will suffice.  Can anyone offer any advice.  The only other alternative is to try and locate the landlord of the flat we stand in front of to see if they will permit a sign on their building.  I'm not clear what the regulation say in relation to fire assembly signs.  We have members of the public present and on occasion children (with parents).


Many thanks.

If the Assembly Point is not on your land or in a public place you won't be able to or expected to sign it. Fire action signs, Evacuation Plan signage and staff training should clearly state where it is and your fire wardens briefed to guide people towards it.
