4.7* Fire Drills
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Emergency egress and relocation drills, where required by Chapters 11 through 43 or the authority having jurisdiction, shall be held with sufficient frequency to familiarize occupants with the drill procedure and to establish conduct of the drill as a matter of routine. Drills shall include suitable procedures to ensure that all persons subject to the drill participate.
When conducting drills, emphasis shall be placed on orderly evacuation rather than on speed.
Drills shall be held at expected and unexpected times and under varying conditions to simulate the unusual conditions that can occur in an actual emergency.
Drill participants shall relocate to a predetermined location and remain at such location until a recall or dismissal signal is given.
