Mock disaster tests fire safety plan and firefighter skills

Prince Edward County firefighters were called to Picton Manor Nursing Home Wednesday night to participate in a mock disaster involving fire and the evacuation of residents at the long-term care facility. Volunteers from the Royal Canadian Air Cadets Prince Edward Squadron posed as residents while Picton Manor’s actual residents were safe in the dining room. Under Ontario regulations, nursing homes are required to host a mock disaster evacuation scenario at least once every three years. The execution of the home’s fire safety plan and the challenges firefighters met will be reviewed.
