Fire drills are for more than just the fire itself but also on how to reach evacuation routes of the building which will help in the event of a power outage, gas or chemical leak, or other emergency situations that may occur at the office.
Fire drills ensure that the employees exit the building in a timely manner and that they know their designated meeting area or assembly point, this will help the rescue efforts in the event an employee is unaccounted for during an actual emergency.
