FIRE DRILL EVACUATION INSTRUCTIONS
In the event of a Fire or Fire Drill do the following:
The school signal to EVACUATE shall be a series of bells, (3) three short rings, followed by a (2) two-second pause (repeated several times).
At this signal, teachers direct students in an orderly departure from the room to the field ASSEMBLY AREA (PE grassy area on the east field), via the assigned evacuation route. In all cases, select the safest route, not just the assigned route.
One designated teacher near each building exit will inspect the exit to see if it is a safe evacuation route. If it is not, the teacher directs the classes to alternate routes.
The teacher picks up the red emergency folder with Room I.D. Card (located in their classroom), insures that all students have evacuated, checks with the ‘Buddy” to verify their safety. Close, but do not lock the doors.
Teachers will lead their students quietly and in a straight line to the ASSEMBLY AREA (safety area), where they sit, by P.E. class.Teachers – refer to the Emergency Response Sheet and line up with their assigned PE class.
Students and teachers wait in the PE area until the signal is given to return to class. Teachers who have a class will be dismissed first. Teachers with a conference period will remain in the PE area until all students are released.
Students will be released by sections from the PE area to return to the classroom they evacuated from.
The students need to leave the buildings in an orderly fashion and in line.
Students should leave their belongings in the classroom.
Students should line up in the hallway next to the lockers and remain there quietly until the teacher is ready to leave.
The teacher should lead the students in a line quietly out of the building.
The teacher should lead the students in a line quietly all the way to the Assembly Area.
Both doors should be closed, but one door of the classroom doors should not be locked.
Please be sure the students understand the importance of getting in line, staying in line and walking out to the blacktop as quietly as possible.
Please take a few moments to remind students that both the real thing and a drill should be taken with the same seriousness no matter how many times they occur.
