While the number of school fires has decreased over recent years, they continue to be a serious risk for schools. Every year around one in twenty schools experiences a fire and nearly hour of faculty fires are started deliberately.

The short effects of loss of facilities and instrumentation may be calculated, however the longer-term effects of loss of work, disruption of categories and lowering of morale square measure a lot of more durable to quantify.

  • Keep fire extinguishers in working condition and learn how to operate them.
  • Practice moving through your escape routes with eyes closed during normal times.
