8 – Emergencies / Fire Exit / Assistance
Audible smoke alarms are fitted in all rooms of Abbey Guest House. A Deafgard vibrating pad and strobe light alarm is available for use by any profoundly deaf or heard of hearing guest in any bedroom.
The main front door entrance is the most accessible exit and closest to all bedrooms in time of emergency. The Fire Assembly Point for guests is the front car park in the shelter of the conifer hedge.
Emergency red coloured pull cords with round toggles are fixed in the ‘Easy Access’ and ‘Family Accessible’ rooms. One is beside the toilets in the wet rooms and the other by the bed nearest the wet room (in Room 1) and the door side of the double bed (in Room 3). If pulled downward, these activate an audible alarm in the hall / reception office. Terry will respond.
If pulled by mistake the re-set button is on the wall next to the bedroom entrance door in Room 1 (at 180 cm height.), In Room 3 there are several re-set points, in the bathroom it is alongside the toilet, in the bedroom it is on the wall next to the bedroom entrance door and there are also re-set buttons in the reception office.
A rear emergency escape route option via the rear garden is also available. Terry is usually available to assist guests escape through this route, should it be necessary, as she lives on site in the ground floor private area.
