Emergency Preparedness

emergencyAt His Growing Grove, providing you with a safe place to leave your child is our primary concern. For that reason, our building has state of the art fire alarm and sprinkler systems to which each classroom is equipped with a pull station. Fire extinguishers and Carbon Monoxide Detectors are also part of the emergency preparedness equipment in our building. Each classroom is outfitted with evacuation supplies. Evacuation drills, along with earthquake drills are conducted quarterly. All HGG staff are required to keep current in CPR and First Aid. Most importantly, parents are required to update emergency contact information daily, providing us with the ability to stay in easy contact no matter what the emergency might be.
