The success of any fire drill depends not only on the swift evacuation but also on the accountability of every individual. In this regard, the teachers and assistants played a crucial role. They efficiently organized students by class into well-defined lines at the designated assembly point. Their meticulous approach ensured that no one was left behind, as they took attendance and confirmed that every student was accounted for. This level of organization instills confidence that the school community is well-prepared to handle emergencies.

By participating in this drill, they gained a firsthand understanding of the importance of preparedness and teamwork during critical moments. The positive and responsible behavior exhibited during the exercise is a testament to the effectiveness of the school’s safety protocols and the commitment of the Thong Lo community to the well-being of its members.
With the successful execution of this fire drill, the Thong Lo campus has set a high standard for preparedness and safety. This experience serves as a reminder that ensuring the safety of students and staff remains a top priority. It is essential to build on this success by continuing to practice fire drills and other safety protocols regularly.
