The Cylch Meithrin must reach minimum fire safety standards. Fire risk assessments must be carried out and stored in a fire file which is separate to the Risk Assessments.
The file should include:
- Fire Drill Reports - one must be held every half term and also if there is a new member of staff
- Fire Alarm Test Record - see example below
- Fire Risk Assessment
- Design of the building
- A record of when fire extinguishers and the smoke alarms were tested by an approved engineer, this must happen yearly.
The cylch must have a building evacuation procedure. The procedure can also be in the form of a poster on the cylch's notice board.
