In the event of a fire, or any other emergency situation that requires the building to be vacated, the fire alarm is sounded, and all occupants evacuate in a pre-determined manner.
If it is not possible to re-enter the building, students and staff would move to the Farwell gym. There are regular firedrills to practice building evacuation.
If an emergency situation requires students and staff to lockdown in an area "code one" or to remain in an area until further notice, staff and students follow the procedures that are established and practiced.
In the event of an emergency at Northwood, please do not phone the school, but check the homepage for updates.
