    Fire and Evacuation Drill Policy

    An employer may use this policy to assign a framework of response relating to a fire emergency or necessary workplace evacuation, as well as to designate the frequency of drills and other methods to test the procedures. A Fire and Evacuation Drill policy offers the essential information required for life saving actions during an emergency and helps reduce the time needed to depart safely from the building, and should include aspects of fire response, such as location and use of fire extinguishers.
