Emergency evacuation procedure

Educators and children will practice an emergency evacuation drill to follow all required procedures and processes. This includes the initial warning and steps to successfully evacuate the stadium. The children will then reflect on what 'we did well', 'what we need to do better' and program staff will evaluate this process.
