Most organisations invest a lot of money in fire protection systems at the workplace. They are also required to prepare and deal with emergencies. However in spite of this whenever there is a fire, people mostly there are fatalities. Sometimes this is due to system failure and primarily because employees are not trained properly. Here the Evacuations drills address the points of where to go and how to do. The Evacuations drills are used in practice in the event of a fire how a building would need to be evacuated. The most common disaster taking place in offices, hotels, multi-storied buildings, manufacturing facilities and other industries is FIRE. The primary issue in the private and public sectors is the frequency of the training, types of exercise, who is the target audience. Should there be a fire what actions should an individual take that would be critical to their safety and the people next to them.
All employees must go through a basic Evacuations drills training, which includes the use of fire equipment, fire emergency plan, emergency escape routes, emergency contact no etc. In addition the company is also required to appoint an Emergency Response Team (ERT) to help assist in such disasters.
