On Nov. 15th, Our company participated in the fire drill which was organized by the district fire brigade yesterday. Here we’d like to share some notice with you.

1. What is a fire drill ?

A fire drill is a method of practicing the evacuation of a building for a fire or other emergency. Generally, the emergency system (usually the fire alarm/smoke detector) sounds and the building is evacuated as though a real fire had occurred. Usually, the time it takes to evacuate is measured to ensure that it occurs within a reasonable length of time, and problems with the emergency system or evacuation procedures are identified to be remedied.

2. The importance of fire drills

Fire drills are an important part of your fire safety procedures for many reasons. Not only do they ensure that all staff, customers and visitors to your premises understand what they need to do if there is a fire, but they also help you to test how effective your fire evacuation plan is and to improve certain aspects of your fire provisions.

As well as testing that your fire alarms are working, carrying out a full fire drill will help you to check other equipment such as fire door retainers, which are usually released when a fire alarm sounds. You may wish to also check that your LED emergency lighting works effectively during the fire drill.

3.How to Act During a Fire Drill

Step 1:

Act as though there is a real fire. Wear a serious expression to suit the seriousness of the occasion, but don't really panic. This will help you get in the mindset for the real thing, if it ever occurs.

Step 2:

Walk slowly toward the nearest fire exit. Check if any of your neighbours are panicking and if they are, try to calm them. If you work in a huge corporate, such behavior may earn you praise from your superiors if not your colleagues.

Step 3:

Assemble at the designated spot.

Step 4:

Wait for the instructor to announce that the drill is over and then proceed in an orderly way to your work area/home
