Fire Drill

Recommended Posts

we did once every half term but tried to ensure as many children as possible did practice it each time, so could be 3 or 4 days over that period, with a mix of afternoon and morning, with children coming and going was the only way we could ensure most knew the drill . we had a register of children who had completed it each time..

 

and did occasionally call it at collection or drop off time.. when parents were there.. was interesting to see who had read out fire drill on parents board and who had not.

We do the same as Bridger too - it is pretty good as you know that every child and adult have attended at least one drill and they will know what to do in the reality,

Yes we do every session for a whole week :(

 

But we had Mrs O visit last week :o

 

She was pleased about how we did it every day..... but xD

 

we should really do it from different exits each time :(

 

you cannot win :(

We are the same - once every half term some morning and some afternoons, different times of the day, different days of the week, different exits and different staff raising the alarm. Then it's logged and evaluated.

We had a really good fire drill the other day when a child 'accidentally' set of the alarm, and I (manager) was absent from the setting. After quickly looking at each other to see which member of staff had been charged with starting the drill, I am glad to say, they all reacted quickly anyway, did the right things and got out in record time.

 

Probably the best practice they could have had. Not to say that we should encourage children to go around setting of alarms though!

We do it each term differnt days to ensure all children at present at some time.

 

Re : do it from different exits each time, we discovered that if children were in the garden area at the side of our building they couldn't hear alarm, so have put in place a what to do. Its interesting as if there was a fire its likely to be in the kitchen and that right by the outside area. We are in a hall and pack away daily but Mrs O was happy we had risk assessed that factor.
