If you participated in the various contests, and have won, be sure to claim your prize by emailing to all of our winners and a bit thank you to everyone who participated.
    • Fire Drill Importance question winner of $5 Starbucks card: Leslie Duley, with the following answer: "Fire drill training and building evacuation is important to do so all the employees and staff in the building are not only aware and knowledgeable of the plans/drills but have also been through a simulated situation.  Training and building evacuation is important so everyone is confident in what the plans are, each person's responsibilities and how to get everyone else out safely.  Be prepared helps prevent chaos, helps keep everyone calm, and prevents injuries from occurring that can be caused from people panicking."
