Prior to the commencement of the exercise, the students and teachers were split into various teams including fire alarm, search and rescue, evacuation, site safety and transportation to carry out the mock drill. A group of fire fighters, headed by fire officer Mohan Rao, armed with necessary paraphernalia required for firefighting and rescue operations positioned themselves at vantage points to guide and assist the students in the mock fire and evacuation drill.

The evacuation operation began moments after the fire alarm team alerted the students with a mock fire alarm bell. The students were immediately evacuated from their classrooms and asked to gather at the assembly point with their teachers. The fire fighters explained and demonstrated different improvised methods followed by them to rescue and evacuate people caught in an emergency situation besides explaining the ways to operate the fire extinguishers safely.
