      Has anyone had any schools change their fire drill protocol for the return-to-school?

      Different exits or staggered exiting?  My school boards have reached out and have been asked what we recommend.

      Our schools are relatively small with 340 and 170 students in 2 elementary and 300 in 1 high school.

      Hi Andrew,

      I’m aware that the OFMEM is working on some guidance for the fire service on this.  Stay tuned.
