(8)  a list of telephone numbers for the emergency services; and
(9)  observation reports from the evacuation drills carried out during the 3 previous years, if available.
The operator establishes the fire safety plan using the guide La prévention des incendies et l’évacuation des résidences hébergeant des personnes âgées and its supplement, published by the Ministère de la Sécurité publique, and keeps it in the residence.
A copy of the plan must be kept near the main entrance of the residence for use by the emergency services. In addition, the sketch referred to in subparagraph 6 of the first paragraph must be posted on each floor of the residence in a place accessible to the public.
All staff members must be informed regularly of the content of the plan and of the specific tasks they are to perform in the event of an evacuation.
