GRS FIRE DRILL THIS SHABBOS MORNING
This announcement is to inform you of a fire drill and building evacuation that Green Road Synagogue is conducting this Shabbos morning, from 10:45am until 11:30am. Our Shomrim have been asked to help out. But our own YI services will not be interrupted by this exercise.
Green Road Synagogue’s leadership is doing this evacuation to see what they can learn from this experience and do much better if a real emergency were to happen. Again, this is just a practice exercise.
You may hear fire engines and police vehicles arriving in Green Road Synagogue’s parking lot. You may also hear hundreds of their members as they assemble for safety in Young Israel’s parking lot and in the back of Yavneh.
All of this has been coordinated with Federation Security and with Beachwood Police and Fire Departments. This is the first of a number of future exercises that are intended to help our various Shul Security Teams become more effective in keeping our members safe.
