When every second counts
In the event of a calamity such as a fire in a building, a life-threatening situation quickly arises. Everyone must leave the building as quickly as possible. An evacuation plan establishes a clear set of guidelines and the progression of steps calms nerves while keeping people focused. An evacuation plan states who is responsible for which action in the event of an emergency. A good evacuation plan contains maps of the escape routes as well.
An evacuation plan for buildings is mandatory according to the building code requirements, the Labour Conditions Act and the Working Conditions Decree. These plans are tested by the fire brigade and the Labor Inspectorate. HooVos has extensive experience in drawing up evacuation plans and we are well aware of the legal requirements and obligations set for these plans. In addition to the requirements and obligations, we ensure that the evacuation plan fits your company and works well.
HooVos, proud of our customer relationships
We have a fitting solution for every situation
Van der Burg has been around since 1982. Started as a supplier in trailer parts, the company successfully grew into a reliable importer and exporter of new and used trucks, and as a wholesaler in truck and trailer parts.
Thanks to good and fast communication, Van der Burg and HooVos can mean a lot to each other. We have a nice collaboration!
We (Inkoper MKB; translates to: Buyer Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, SMEs) have been working with HooVos for several years now. As a purchasing organization, we are always looking for reliable partners and HooVos is one of them.
As a buyers collective with a strong focus on the automotive industry, we have high safety requirements. This includes the inspection and maintenance of our extinguishing agents.
The maintenance we carry out doesn’t stop at the municipal office but goes much further: we maintain all municipal buildings.
This means that the municipality is a client who offers us a lot of variety in terms of work and we are proud of that!
Main benefits of evacuation plans
Evacuation plans designed by HooVos describe exactly what has to happen in case of an emergency. Our evacuation plans are tailor-made and meet all legal requirements and obligations. We can guarantee this through our extensive experience in drawing up the plans, as well as our broad experience in the fire prevention/safety industry.
Main benefits of evacuation plans
The most important advantages of having your evacuation plan drawn up by HooVos are that you meet all legal requirements, that the evacuation plan has a professional design, that the content is up to date and that it has been tailor-made for your company. With the evacuation plan you can also prevent and/or limit injuries to people and animals, as well as prevent extra material damages.

Frequently asked questions
The location of an extinguishing agent must be marked in accordance with NEN 4001-3011. If necessary, the location of the extinguishing agent should be indicated with additional signs. For example, consider an icon in combination with an arrow for the direction. You must keep an overview of the types, number and locations of the extinguishing agents.
In general, we recommend foam extinguishers, because they cause the least collateral damage. Our foam extinguishers can extinguish up to 1,000 V and can also be used on, for example, normal-sized meter boxes.
In addition, powder extinguishers are mainly recommended for hazardous substances. Carbon dioxide snow extinguishers no longer fall under the basic extinguishing agents and can be used extra for, for example, a server room.
A building has such a lighting installation that it can be used and left safely. Obligation to provide emergency lighting is determined by the functional use of a building. This is indicated by a table in the Building Decree.
Feel free to call us for additional information!
We advise our customers to replace the AED after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired. The manufacturer’s warranty can differ per brand, but on average this is 8 years. We are not saying that the AED will no longer work after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, but ‘assuming’ that the AED works in the event of an incident is too great a risk!
Our planning will contact you annually to agree a date for maintenance. So you never have to think about the safety of your home or business again. If a technician sees a change in your situation, he will give you advice about this during the time for maintenance. If you have any questions before, you can contact us. Our representative will then visit you without obligation.
Yes, and it is also a recognized training company.
Yes, this is especially important for insurance companies.
HooVos is a recognized fire protection company and must maintain the extinguishing equipment of their customers every year, so that they retain their recognition. Insurance companies sometimes want to deviate from this, but this depends on the relevant risk. If you also want to have the maintenance carried out once every two years, make sure that you receive this ‘in black and white’ from the insurance company, so that you will be paid by them in the event of an incident.
