- Our Life Safety Code surveyors check to see whether your facility has completed a current evacuation work sheet on each resident.
- Surveyors look for current evacuation work sheets on each resident even if local fire authorities have recommended that your facility not attempt evacuation.
- If a resident's condition changes, you must promptly update his or her work sheet.
