Every school needs an evacuation plan to help people get out of buildings quickly and prevent or reduce injuries during accidents. This article shows a step-by-step guide on how to create a school evacuation plan.

Why School Needs Evacuation Plans?

The school evacuation plan is a kind of documentation of showing evacuation routes in the building structure. Preparation in advance can prevent injuries from emergencies or disasters. Schools should make students familiar with the school escape routes so that when an accident occurs, they will know where to go, what actions to take and how to keep themselves safe.
