A Mock fire and evacuation drill was conducted for the students of classes III to X on Tuesday, August 22, 2023 to create awareness and preparedness during calamities. The students were trained to be alert, quick and responsible, follow instructions, maintain calm and avoid panic to avert stampede and casualties. The main aim of the drill was to build courage and confidence amongst students and develop leadership skills.
The students were sensitized beforehand about the exit plan to be followed and the standard operating procedures to be undertaken for the evacuation drill. The staff members positioned themselves at pre decided vantage points to guide and assist the students as soon as the fire alarm went off. The students quickly moved out in proper lines towards the exit routes to the open school field. The drills focused on activation of the full response system, incorporated decision making and life safety aspects and was followed by a review session. The principal, Mrs Anjali Sharma addressed the teachers and students and reiterated the Dos and Don’ts in case of an emergency. The evacuation mock drill was an exercise to give training to the students to face and handle emergency situations in real life.
