Cosmo Specialty Fibers employees will participate in a series of emergency evacuation drills during the month of November. Evacuation drills are required to be performed annually in accordance with Washington Administrative Code (WAC) Title 51-54A: State Building Code Adoption and Amendment of the 2015 International Fire Code.

The drills will allow Cosmo to check the adequacy of their procedures for critical events while allowing employees the opportunity to practice their skills and emergency preparedness response in the event of a real emergency.

Scheduled Drill Dates and Alarm Times are as follows:

During the drills, Cosmo Specialty Fibers’ alarms will sound and instructions will be provided to employees via intercom and radio communications. The alarms sounding during these times may be heard outside the mill property and are for training purposes only and will not signify an actual emergency.  The drills will take about an hour to perform.

These practice drills are a part of Cosmo Specialty Fibers ongoing commitment to safety and emergency response preparedness in the unlikely event of an actual emergency.
