FIRE PREVENTION

 

 

Key to eliminating the loss of life from a building fire is to ensure that the building’s occupants can promptly evacuate the building.  Upon the occurrence of a fire, there is a very small window of opportunity to evacuate the building before it becomes uninhabitable (about one minute).  This can only be accomplished with practice.  For this reason, fire drills are required in all government buildings at least annually.  Training units must conduct a fire drill in the first week of every cycle and another in the second half of the cycle. Child care facilities must conduct drills in accordance with AR 608-10.  If you have fire drill inquiries, call 596-0886.
