Fire Drills @ CIES

Fire drills are an important part of of fire safety procedures for any organization and at CIES we conduct drills on a regular basis at both our SE and NE locations. Not only do fire drills ensure that all staff, clients and visitors to our locations understand what they need to do if there is a fire, but they also help you to test how effective your fire evacuation plan is and to improve upon it.

As well as testing that your fire alarms are working, carrying out a full fire drill will help you to check other equipment such as emergency exits or lighting. Knowing how often to carry out a fire drill will depend on the level of risk that is present in your building, with an often suggested minimum a minimum of at twice a year. CIES conducts at least a half dozen per year, far exceeding such standards.

Our SE location carried out a surprise fire drill just today and as per usual was done in both a timely and efficient manner. Great job everyone, most especially out littlest clients!
