Building Emergency Response Plans
All UBC buildings must have their own Building Emergency Response Plan (BERP).
A BERP helps ensure the safety of building occupants through fire prevention and emergency evacuation and ensures compliance to the BC Fire Code. It provides a checklist of procedures for responding to, and reporting, an emergency as well as assists in the recruitment and training of Building Emergency Directors and Building Floor Wardens.
RMS has created a template BERP for UBC buildings. Your building’s Local Health and Safety Committee should have a copy of this document available with content specific to your building/area.
