Audible smoke alarms are fitted in all rooms of Abbey Guest House. A Deafgard vibrating pad and strobe light alarm is available for use by any profoundly deaf or heard of hearing guest in any bedroom.
The main front door entrance is the most accessible exit and closest to all bedrooms in time of emergency. The Fire Assembly Point for guests is the front car park in the shelter of the conifer hedge.
Emergency red coloured pull cords with round toggles are fixed in the ‘Easy Access’ suite. One is beside toilet in the wet room and the other by the bed nearest the wet room. If pulled downward, these activate an audible alarm in the hallway. Terry will respond.
If pulled by mistake the re-set button is on the wall by the top of the bedroom entrance door at 180 cm height.
A rear emergency escape route option via the rear garden is also available. This does involve crossing a 6cm door threshold with an 18cm drop and then going down two steps of 8cm and 11cm. Terry is usually available to assist guests escape through this route, should it be necessary, as she lives on site in the ground floor private area.
Note: It is planned to remove this threshold within a planned extension in the near future.
