Fire and Life Safety Program

In order for the Fire and Life Safety Program to be effective, it is necessary that all supervisory staff within the building participate in a comprehensive training program. The program includes lectures and handouts and is followed up by a fire drill to reinforce the training. The fire drill will provide an opportunity to provide practical training of the emergency evacuation procedures and the use of the exit facilities for all building occupants….
