EVACUATE Response Protocol
The EVACUATE response is activated when people need to move from one location to another for safety reasons. Most often, evacuations will be necessary when there’s a heating/ventilation system failure, a nearby gas leak, or other potential danger. An evacuation drill is very similar to a fire drill.
When an EVACUATE alert is sounded, students and staff have been trained to quickly and calmly exit the building and proceed in an orderly fashion to the designated safe location. Teachers will take the roll to account for students and then wait for further information and instructions.
