Fire Drill at the ibis Dresden Zentrum
Good Marks for the Fire Drill at ibis Dresden Zentrum
The alarm sirens wailed at Ibis Dresden Zentrum. Heavy smoke emissions on the 1st floor had set the alarm off. Immediately all employees from the Reservation, Sales and Management Departments congregated on the ground floor of the 11 storey hotel. The goal: The fountain on Prager Straße – the central meeting point of the fire drill plan of the three hotel buildings in Dresden’s biggest shopping area. All employees from the first floor met the employees from the kitchen, restaurant and bar in the lobby, who had already gathered there. Only five minutes later the Fire Service “Feuerwache Dresden Mitte”, Europe’s longest standing Fire Service, arrived at the reception. After a quick look at the display of the fire alarm control center at reception, the Dresden’s firemen entered the danger zone, just one floor above, equipped with their respiratory equipment, fire-axes and fire-hoses.
