Regular fire inspections and drills are required for the licensing of all Kids Come First Programs. The children will practice evacuation procedures monthly. In the event of a fire, gas leak, flood, water shortage or any other emergency where evacuation is required, the children will be taken to their designated emergency shelter/location as determined by the York Region District School Board. The alternative location will be posted on the evacuation form posted in the classrooms or main bulletin board. In the event of an evacuation, parents will be informed by email (or by phone for those families not on email).
Kids Come First has developed an emergency preparedness Policy for a variety of events that children attending the program may be a exposed to. The policy will include procedures prior to, during and after evacuations or emergencies occur.
