Fire & Emergency Protocols

FIRE SAFETY & EMERGENCY EVACUATION PLAN

In the event of an Emergency situation, Discovery has an Emergency Evacuation Policy and Procedure in place. The Discovery Program has established practices that remove children and staff from danger in the event of fire or other emergency situations. Having an emergency evacuation plan is essential for child care centers, where safety of staff and children is paramount. All staff should be well aware of procedures, including emergency numbers and emergency exits, which is discussed and demonstrated during site orientations and is reviewed annually by Staff when reading the Policy Manual. Moreover, Staff practice Emergency Evacuation procedures beforehand to prepare them for a real emergency situation. Monthly drills are done with the children to review the procedures. In the event of a real Emergency Evacuation, a Supervisor or Lead Staff member will contact parents / guardians promptly after the children have been removed from the situation and brought to the designated evacuation site.  Parents/Guardians will be contacted by phone, email or through the REMIND app.  If a parent cannot be reached staff will continue to call or contact the other people on the emergency pick up list.  Staff will bring the Emergency First Aid Back Pack with them during an evacuation, which contains all of the children's Contact information and Emergency medication.
A COPY OF THE FULL POLICY IS AVAILABLE FOR MORE INFORMATION IN THE DISCOVERY POLICY MANUAL IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO REVIEW THIS TOPIC FURTHER.
