Help, help!

“Help, help, there is a fire!” or: “Help, help, Sientje is not breathing anymore!” We hope we never have to experience this, but it’s better to be prepared in case it does. Last month, the girls and ‘mothers’ practiced how to leave the house as safely and as quickly as possible in case a fire would break out. It is good to have an annual fire drill, so everybody knows what to do when something really happens. A fire drill is a serious thing, but because it is not real, it is also an occasion to have fun together. After this year’s fire drill, a team of experts also conducted a first aid training to the staff. We are very glad to be able to receive this training in order to make sure that all staff know what to do in case of an actual emergency.
