I am doing Activity 1 on Mrs. Smith’s blog.
Some natural disasters that happen where I live are earthquakes, fires, and prolonged extreme heat. We have prepared at school for fire drills, earthquake drills, shelter in place drill, and an intruder drill. For a fire drill, we have an alarm and all line up and evacuate in a single file and organized and go to the basketball court and line up in lines. I actually made a little list of what to do:
For an earthquake drill, the speakers from the office tell us when it starts and when it ends. Every one gets under their desks and tucks under and holds the desk legs. Click this little link to watch a little slide show/ video.
In a shelter in place drill, we seal the doors and windows. This drill is in case there is toxic fumes or chemical spills outside.
And finally, in a lock down (intruder) drill, we lock all the doors and windows and turn down the lights and be silent and wait for it to be clear. Click down below and watch the next slide show.
At home we really haven’t discussed it. I haven’t really experienced any of these except for prolonged heat, which here we call it summer, lol, anyway… That’s really it and I have no advice to give because I haven’t experienced any of this in my lifetime.
