Any building or area with a high risk to life or property should be pre-planned.

Consideration should also be given to properties with particular problems of exposures, such as large structures with little or no fire resistive properties, lack of water and poor fire department access particularly in the winter and the spring.

Fuel storage and propane storage tanks present special hazards in a rural setting.

A common format for pre-plans is an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet with a scale drawing of the building.  The following information is ten collected:

exposure hazards

water main sizes

hydrant location

alternate source of water supply

total water available

street name, address

location of power lines

location of utilities shut-offs – power, gas, water

name, telephone number of owner/occupier

storage of hazardous materials

location and type of fire protection equipment

fire safety plans

fire department access

The drawing should include wall and roof construction, stairwells, elevators, sprinkler systems, alarm systems, door and window locations.

Ultimately the plan is used to assist the fire department to safely address an incident.
