Practice practice practice ... #67

Every two or three months buildings in Wellington go through their practice evacuation procedures. We never know when it is going to happen. Our building of 31 floors takes about 7 - 8 mins to evecuate everybody. here are the fire wardens from each floor waiting for a debrief following the latest evacuation.

And as with all things about public safety there is usually some Government legislation behind it somehere .. so for those that love the regulated world have a look at THE FIRE SAFETY AND EVACUATION OF BUILDINGS REGULATIONS 1992

YES it does seem quick ... but we only have 31 floors ... buildings do not go much taller than this in Wellington ... remember we are on an earthquake fault line ... nice huh !!!
