Twice a year the leadership at my church conducts a fire drill during Sunday morning worship. A few weeks before the drill, the congregation is given a map of each level of the building, including all of the exits. When the fire alarm is activated we move quickly outdoors to our designated meeting places.
It’s important to know what precautions to take before entering any building, whether it’s a school, workplace, shopping mall, or place of worship. This new video on places of public assembly and the assembly occupancy safety tips offer information on the precautions to take before you enter a building, while you are there, and during an emergency.
