Carefor Civic Complex and Mackay Centre Celebrate Successful Evacuation Drills with Record Time

Published on November 6, 2023

The safety of our retirement home residents is our top priority, which is  why Carefor Civic Complex and Mackay Centre recently celebrated conducting successful evacuation drills with record-breaking times. The commitment to the safety and care of our residents, combined with the participation of our 172 amazing residents, enabled Carefor to achieve exceptional results during our recent evacuation drills.

The Importance of Evacuation Drills

At Carefor Civic Complex and Mackay Centre we aim to provide a comfortable and supportive environment for our residents. In emergency situations, the safety of our elderly residents become the main priority. During our most recent evacuation drill, Carefor staff were able to practice their skills and help residents evacuate each residence in record time.

Successful evacuation drills not only ensure that residents and staff are familiar with emergency procedures but also play a crucial role in testing the efficiency of these procedures. Regular drills help identify areas for improvement, ensuring that the safety protocols are continually evolving and becoming more effective.

In their most recent evacuation drills, both retirement homes achieved record-breaking results in terms of the time it took to evacuate their residents. This incredible accomplishment can be attributed Meticulous Planning, Communication and Team Work.

Celebrating Success and Continuing Improvement

The successful evacuation drills were not only a cause for celebration but also an opportunity for reflection. The staff at Carefor Civic Complex and Mackay Centre recognized that there is always room for improvement, and with that, we held after-action meetings regarding each drill to cover any improvements and updates needed to ensure future potential emergencies were handled with the utmost care and efficiency. Carefor is committed to the safety and well-being of our residents, and we would like to thank our staff for their meticulous planning, training, and ongoing improvement efforts, demonstrating the highest level of care for our residents.
