This week, we familiarise and reinforce proper evacuation routines and practices.

Ziena and I decided to practice our fire evacuation procedures. While. everyone was very busy participating in various activities, I blew the whistle and alerted everyone to the fire in the office, following which everyone got busy gathering the children, double-checking the rooms, and carrying the emergency bags.

After we evacuated the children safely, we conducted a headcount to ensure we had all the children and educators.

We exited through the emergency gate and gathered in the parking lot before coming back in. (After coming in, we explained to them what just happened and gave them tips to follow if anything like this happened.)

We at Sonas practice our emergency procedures monthly with the children. This allows everyone to practice handling these situations, and not panicking too much was a great relief, and everyone was handling everything properly.
