Disaster Management Mock Drill


An earthquake mock drill involving students and staff of Primary Wing was conducted on 18th April, 2019 at 8:45 a.m. in The Khaitan School to sensitize the students to respond skillfully and swiftly in case of an unforeseen emergency and to become aware of the exit plans to be followed for evacuation. Before the commencement of the drill, the students were briefed by their teachers about the hooter, standard operating procedures and the exit plans to be followed. The exercise began with the blowing of hooter, followed by the table top excercise for 10 sec in which the students ducked under the desks and thereafter rushed to the playfield along with their teachers. The floor marshals checked the toilets and classes to ensure the building was fully evacuated. Once the students assembled in the ground, the head count of the students was taken by the teachers and reported to the authorities. The Principal reiterated the importance of mock drill and reinforced the safety measures to the students. Only, when the building was declared safe, the students were asked to move back to their classes with their teachers in an organized manner.
