    To ensure a safe and organized evacuation, it is necessary to wait for the order. This allows for proper coordination and prevents any confusion or chaos that may arise if individuals start evacuating on their own accord. Waiting for the order ensures that everyone is aware of the situation, knows the designated evacuation routes, and can evacuate in a timely and orderly manner.
