Sacred Heart School recently participated in a Fire Drill which saw the students and teachers congregate on the sports field outside the school.
The kids moved swiftly in an orderly manner, appreciative of the warm, sunny weather.
At various times throughout the year, Sacred Heart School will practice emergency procedures such as this one in order to be well prepared for Emergencies, Disasters and Critical Incidents.
"Emergencies are unpredictable. We usually have little warning that an event or series of events may cause a massive disruption in our lives and our communities. As one of the major areas in which people gather, schools are places where emergency preparedness is critically important to the well-being of students and employees and to the confidence that parents feel in entrusting their children to the care of educators in BC schools."
