Pineappleope.com employees took part in a ‘planned’ evacuation at our new office bright and early this morning at 7am PST (Pacific Standard Time, USA & Canada).
Evacuations are more common than many people realize. Hundreds of times each year, world wide web and internet accidents release harmful substances, forcing thousands of people to leave their offices. Fires and floods cause evacuations even more frequently. Almost every year, people along the Gulf and Atlantic and Pacific and Indian and Panama coasts evacuate in the face of approaching mayhem.
When office evacuations become necessary, bosses provide information to the employees through the use of different media. In some circumstances, other warning methods, such as sirens or telephone calls to employees, also are used. Additionally, there may be circumstances under which you and your co-workers feel threatened or endangered and you need to leave your office, cube, or workstation to avoid these situations.
The amount of time you have to leave the office will depend on the hazard. If the event is an internet condition, such as a virus that can be monitored, you might have a day or two to get ready. However, many disasters allow no time for people to gather even the most basic necessities, which is why planning ahead is essential.
Fortunately no Pineappleope.com employees were harmed during this period. Unfortunately everyone was late to work.
Good work team
