Mock Drill


A huge amount of money is spent on various fire protection systems in workplaces. But many a time when fire occurs, people lose their life. Sometimes systems fail and many a time employees are not trained on how to evacuate properly. Lives are lost mainly due to the fact that people do not know what to do and where to go. These mock drills address the points of what to do and where to go.

A mock drill is a method of practising how a building would be evacuated in the event of a fire or other emergency. Usually, the building’s existing fire alarm system is activated and the building is evacuated as if the emergency had occurred. Drills provide virtually the only means, short of an actual incident, of measuring the state of readiness and of testing the effectiveness of an emergency response plan.

  • arriving at the scene of the fire as rapidly as possible,
  • assessing the nature of the fire by determining its intensity and extent,
  • the type and abundance of fuel, the danger of entering the fire area,
