Fire Drills

Fires can happen anywhere and knowing what to do is the key to surviving a fire emergency. Fire drills are required by Code to be done in many different occupancies, including day cares, schools, businesses and hotels. But even beyond the requirement, conducting regular fire drills will give you and your co-workers the knowledge and confidence to escape a fire safely.

There are two steps for a good evacuation program to planning and practice. Planning includes creating an evacuation plan, determining a meeting spot, proper accounting for all employees and extra considerations for special needs employees. Practice is putting all this in action and ensuring that it works and that people respond properly and in a timely manner. The Lake Mary Fire Department can help you with both of these areas.
