Fire Drill at TU

I was watching the news last night and they featured the Fire and Earthquake drill that was conducted at all the public and private schools this week. It is a project of the Department of National Defense to prepare students in case of these emergencies. They even have real fire coming out of the building and I even saw some teachers carrying emergency lights and there was even a real rescue scenario and an ambulance even came in to do an actual simulation.

Toddlers Unlimited had their Fire Drill also a couple of weeks ago. I was not at school that time but my mom was telling me that it was a good practice. They gave all the nannies orientation on what to do during an emergency and they even had an actual simulation also. They asked all the nannies to line up with their respective kids and they all calmly went down the building using the stairs. The teachers are even singing nursery rhymes with all the kids so the kids will not panic and will exit the building in a fun and organize manner.

It is good that Bela’s school also conducted a fire drill so at least the nannies and the kids will know what to do in case there is an emergency.
