In a high volume hospital in the middle of Manhattan, safety for employees and patients is a major concern. There are countless codes, and drills that are practiced through the year, often several times a month. As an employee of such a hospital, one such drill is fire safety at work drill. In a crowded hospital, or rather in any crowded setting, the damage fire’s can do, can be greatly magnified. Due to the multitude of people in an enclosed area, escaping a fire in such a setting can be difficult. Therefore in a hospital setting one of the most important ways in dealing with fires is fire containment, and awareness. Fireproof doors can be found in every floor of a hospital. When a fire alarm is tripped in an area, the doors will automatically close, containing the fire. Furthermore employees are taught to always keep certain designated fire doors closed at all times. In case of a fire, all employees are instructed to first and foremost identify the location of the fire if possible, and immediately let our security team know the location. Afterwards we are to look after the safety of immediate patients, and employees. Finally when this is done, and if it is possible, employees are instructed to make sure the areas around the fire are evacuated, and to provide help if possible. Every employee is taught the closest fire escape route around their station, as well as how to navigate to alternate routes.
