      6. Calling "911"

    • Schools will engage in their regular monthly fire drills and invite Chandler Fire, Health & Medical to evaluate one of these drills each year.
    • Teachers and Custodians will use a self-inspection form to evaluate their areas for commonly found fire hazards.
    • Schools will be inspected annually by a Chandler Fire, Health & Medical Fire Inspector.
    • Schools will ensure that at least 10% of their staff is CPR certified.
