A national-level drill was conducted for the students of CSI Ewarts Matriculation School as a means to spread information on the various methods of evacuation, by the Tamil Nadu Fire and Rescue services on Tuesday.

The drill was conducted and the students were briefed on the various dos and don’ts when it came to evacuation. A mock drill was conducted, wherein a fire was simulated in the building and the students exited in an orderly manner. They then presented information on the various types of fires and methods to extinguish the fires, which included using dry mud and various types of extinguishers, as demonstrated by 25 personnel of the fire stations in Kilpauk, Vepery and Teynampet.

Evacuation conducted by student volunteers was a success as they helped carry out injured comrades through simple carrier methods that were taught by the firemen. A 54-metre long Bronto sky crane from the Teynampet station was also used to help evacuate people ‘stranded’ on the roof of the school building.The students took back a lot of information and thanked the firemen for their efforts in demonstrating the various evacuation and fire safety techniques.
