CFN Daycare Evacuation Plan
CFN Daycare staff regularly practice evacuation from the daycare with children.
In the event of an emergency which requires evacuation of the daycare, CFN Daycare staff will follow the practiced procedures to leave the building.
CFN Daycare Staff and children will assemble at their designated “Muster Point” location. This is located at the back of the daycare, near the corner of 5 Ave and 33rd St NE.
Depending on the situation and instructions provided by any emergency personnel, children and staff will either return to the daycare or parents will be contacted to pick up their children at the Muster Point.
