Fire Evacuation Plan Put to the Test at Honaunau Elementary

It pays to have and practice an evacuation plan. Case in point, last Friday, a brushfire right next to the Honaunau Elementary School campus sparked school staff and parents to lead students to an open field above the school, following their evacuation protocol. Everyone was kept out of harm's way as firefighters were able to quickly respond and put the fire out.

Does your child's school or even your own home have an evacuation plan and most importantly, is it regularly rehearsed?
