There will be an evacuation drill carried out on Saturday 20/5/2017 at the Garden City Mall, Thika road. Customers visiting the mall are encouraged to be calm and not to panic as the drill will be undertaken.
Evacuation drills are conducted to practice how people will be evacuated from a building incase of a fire or any other emergency. The goal will be to measure the response and identify the easiest, quickest and safest way to evacuate people from the mall in case of an emergency.
Kindly share this to avoid panic and injury as witnessed by a past drill in the country conducted at Strathmore University. Blasts and gunshots were heard in the campus and the students and staff were not aware. This led to a stampede and even death was reported.
Here is the official statement from the mall;
