Prominent staff from the fire station in Bhubaneswar visited our school to conduct a demonstration of fire safety measures that need to be implemented at the school. Safety tips given during the demo addressed fire safety deficiencies observed at the school, the duties and responsibilities of a person during a fire in the building, and the immediate steps to be taken while maintaining presence of mind. They said that everyone should become familiar with the primary and secondary ways to evacuate the building from wherever they are. Teachers and staff were familiarized with the school’s fire protection system including the location of the fire alarms. They also said that fire drills must be held at least once a month while school is in session, and that school fire drills are a model for students to use in their homes as well. Students were encouraged to practice their escape plans at school and at home.
