General Emergency Evacuation Plan – Stables Bar

The purpose of a General Emergency Evacuation Plan (GEEP) is to enable visitors to the building with restricted mobility or those who may not be able to evacuate unaided to become familiar with the layout, evacuation procedures, available equipment and communication devices.

The Building: Stable Bar and Gallery consists of a ground floor bar area, adjoined with a ground floor mini kitchen and seating area with a casual seating area on the 1st floor above the main bar. There are 4 fire exits available from the building on the ground floor. The area has one staircase leading to the 1st floor which may be used in the event of a fire and are protected by fire door at the top and bottom of the stairs. It is not recommended that persons with significant mobility constraints should use the building without a Personal Emergency Egress Plan (PEEP) being put in place.
