WINCHESTER — On Thursday, August 16, the daily routine at Dundas Manor was interrupted by a Code Green – leading to the evacuation of all the residents. And while it was only a drill, the mock evacuation demonstrated an effective and efficient response to ensuring both resident and staff safety in evacuating everyone from the home.

“Thanks to everyone who helped plan the exercise and those who participated in the mock evacuation,” noted Susan Poirier, Administrator. “It’s all part of our efforts to be prepared for any type of emergency and to ensure our residents and staff are safe.”

As part of the learning, everyone at Dundas Manor will participate in a full debrief to review the

experience and look for opportunities to improve the process.
