Menlo College staged an emergency preparedness drill rehearsal for staff on campus recently. The drill covered four buildings: Administration, Admissions, Gymnasium, and the Student Union. The exercise was observed by members of the Atherton Police Department, the Atherton Fire Department, and the fire alarm contractor.
The emergency exercise began at a time that was not preannounced to the staff, when assigned building monitors activated the fire alarm sirens and ordered the staff to evacuate the buildings and assemble in predesignated areas outside on the campus. Offices and rooms were checked and roll call was taken. Building monitors practiced a report to the head of the emergency team on fatalities, and immediate medical needs.
