Most people realize that at some point they will experience an emergency. Statistically, these emergencies occur within the home or while at work. Among the most severe are fires and weather related emergencies occurring in the home. There has been a push by the fire service to educate the public about fire prevention and safety. This has been accomplished with smoke detector programs, stop-drop-roll campaigns, as well as other forms of life safety education. These efforts have been extremely successful at saving lives and reducing property loss. However; there is more that can be done in the area of planning and citizen preparedness. Emergency Pre-Planning is the answer. Tull Design specializes in commercial and residential pre-emergency planning. Combining the technologies of computer aided drafting (CAD) as well as drone technology, Tull Design can assist homeowners as they plan for the unexpected.
How it works:
Tull Design will meet with you at your location (residence or place of business) to identify and discuss your current plan and or needs. We are open to our clients concerns and wish to provide them a service that will give them piece of mind should an emergency occur.
Following the meeting, a field technician will take a guided tour of your home and or place of business. The purpose of this tour is to allow you the occupant or business owner to identify areas of higher concern. The technician will then field measure your building to include floor layouts of each building level. This process will yield a working CAD drawing of your home or facility that can then be used to begin the emergency planning process. There are several items captured and or developed using this electronic plan. These include:
- Location of building systems (HVAC, electrical and gas shut-offs, specialty areas)
- Egress paths with identified points of exit
- Building anatomy (roof construction, slab or crawlspace foundation, square footage)
When an emergency occurs seconds count. Having a plan eliminates or cuts down on the amount of time it takes to act. The faster you act, the better the outcome. First responders also understand this as they deal with an array of emergencies on a daily basis.
