Mock Fire Drill
A mock fire and evacuation drill involving students and teachers was conducted on 24th September 2018 at Hindustan International School – Padur to create awareness among the students about fire-fighting techniques and the ways to respond swiftly in times of such emergency situation. A demonstration of using fire safety equipment was conducted by the experts from the Department of Fire and Emergency services to sensitize the staff and students about life-saving and rescue techniques in case of fire.
A group of staff armed with necessary paraphernalia required for firefighting and rescue operations positioned themselves at vantage points to guide and assist the students in the mock fire and evacuation drill.
The “evacuation” operation began moments after the fire alarm alerted the students. The students were immediately evacuated from their classrooms and asked to gather at the assembly area.
The mock drill was carried out in the school to prepare students and teachers for any such eventuality under the fire risk reduction programme.
It was organized to check the readiness of the school to face any such fire emergency and also to make the students and staff awareness about the Fire Fighting rescue operation.
