Fire drill!

This afternoon we had a fire drill on board the Endeavour, where one of the scientists got the chance to play the leading role of 'casualty'. The scenario was an electrical fire in the wet lab, which resulted in an unconscious casualty. In the drill everyone on board the Endeavour played a part, whether it was setting up the fire hose, grabbing the fire extinguishers or acting as a first aider. Drills are really important to make sure we all know what to do in the event of something going wrong for real.
