All school staff need to know the contents of the fire emergency plan. This is not just how to get out in an emergency, it is about all fire safety issues in the building. For example, all schools carry out fire drills during normal school days, but drills are also needed for breakfast and after school clubs. They are also required if the building is hired to third parties. Head teachers should also consider fire drills during break and lunch times to see how efficient their fire plan is.
