Writing Assessment-Fire Drill Explnation

A fire could happen at any time, so it is best you know what to do. Fire drills save lives! These drills will tutor you what to do in case you are ever caught in a real fire. Every 6 months a school is required by the New Zealand fire department to do a fire drill. You are not the only one, schools throughout all of NZ have to do them.
A fire drill is a type of safety precaution. It is taken to make sure that you and all of you associates are safe. Not only that but they are also used to check that the alarms are working because if there is a real fire and the alarms don't work, then you are in trouble. Another concept checked when a fire drill happens is the escape plan, if you don't have an effective escape plan then you could become trapped and you don't want that to happen. The final that item is checked is the checked is the meeting point, you will have to check that your meeting point is far enough away from the fire that you are safe.
If you ever hear a fire alarm go off you should know what to do. As soon as you hear it, stand up and start walking to your nearest fire exit (these are marked with special green exit signs) Then assemble with the rest of your school at the designated safety zone. After that, you need to be a quiet as possible to make sure that everyone is present, if not then that means that they are still inside. Finally don’t go back inside until you get the all clear.
Recently there was a humongous fire at Grenfell towers. Unfortunately over 80 people died and over 70 were injured. This took place in west London on the 14th of June 2017. The fire brigade showed up at 6 minutes to one in the morning and the fire burned for 60 hours! It started on the fourth floor after a fridge freezer caught fire and due to the building exterior cladding the fire spread rapidly all the way up to the 28th floor burning 129 flats in the process. The deaths could have been avoided if they had a reasonable fire plan, where there’s was just stay where you are.

Remember that a fire can happen at any time. It could happen at school, at home or even in your car. So make sure you know where to go and what to do in the case of a fire. Remember to be ready for anything, anytime, anywhere…
