Every school needs an evacuation plan to prevent or reduce injuries during accidents and help people get out of buildings quickly. 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 paper documentation showing evacuation routes on the building structure. Preparation in advance can prevent injuries from emergencies or disasters. Schools should prepare students well by letting them get familiar with the school escape routes so that when an accident occurs, they will know where to go and what actions to take.
