||2016 Guidance on Required Drills
||The 2016 Virginia General Assembly passed House Bill 1279 which amended §§ 22.1-137 and 22.1-137.2 of the Code of Virginia dealing with evacuation/fire drills and lockdown drills.
The Code of Virginia mandates separate and distinct codes for a fire evacuation drill and a lockdown drill [Statewide Fire Prevention Code (SFPC) Section 404.2.3]. The method of signaling emergency response behaviors should be distinct, well understood, and practiced by everyone at the school or on the campus.
