FIRE DRILLS

 

A fire drill is a method of practicing the evacuation procedures in the event of a fire or other emergencies.

Its purpose is to ensure that everyone knows how to exit the building safely and as quickly as possible if a fire, smoke, carbon monoxide or other emergency occurs. People need to recognize the sound of the fire alarm.

 

There are several steps that must be made to properly conduct fire drills:

  • notifying occupants about fire drills in advance, 

  • notifying the fire department, 

  • notifying the monitoring company, 

  • operating fire alarm system and voice communication system, 

  • documenting the fire drills. 

The frequency of fire drills depends on the occupancy of the building and its height.
