Today (Thursday 17th May 2018) we held a fire evacuation drill. These essential drills are carried out to ensure all staff, volunteers, children from Early Years and members of the public who use the Centre are practised and prepared in evacuating the Centre in good time.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everybody onsite today for allowing the fire drill to run smoothly and successfully. We evacuated the whole premises in 2.5 minutes which is a great time. We would also like to apologise to anyone who was inconvenienced and to the 12 Mums and young babies attending Bumps & Babies session today. We had 40 children in our Early Years department all of whom behaved impeccably. We thank you all for your cooperation.
Having regular drills can be quite disruptive to the site, which we do appreciate but they are so important. It allows us to time the evacuations, but it can also highlight any potential places where we need to improve, whether this be communication and signage, or advising our visitors more frequently of the fire evacuation procedure.
If anyone has any comments or suggestions regarding the drill today please contact the centre on 01885 488495 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
