March Drill of the Month: FIRE DRILL

Posted by Chuck Goodwin on 3/1/2020 12:05:00 AM

Team Shoreline:

We've done this drill many times, so "winning" this month should be as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1.  Principals (i.e. Incident Command) read the procedures for "Fire or Fire Alarm" in the SSD Emergency Preparedness Manual (page 60) and have your Staff read the "Fire or Fire Alarm Procedure" from their classroom Emergency Flip Chart.

2.  Conduct a Fire Drill and complete the Drill Record Form:

  • Side 1 - Drill Conditions: participation, statistics, weather and problems encountered.
  • Side 2 - Drill Checklist: for evaluating Drill effectiveness.

3.  Place your Drill Record Form in District Mail / or Scan & Email to me so I can record it in Rapid Responder.

For extra emergency preparedness: Have a section of your Building use an alternate evacuation route to simulate a potential barrier to the Student Assembly Area.


Standardizing Drills means safer schools -- which leads to increased learning!
