Why can't they have firedrills in the summer when it's much warmer?

Last time we had one at school - they waited till the middle of a thunderstorm!

Thunderstorm! It must be a conspiracy or there must be something in fire manual that says that it must be done at the most inconvenient times.

Looks like I missed one this afternoon. Checking my work e-mails there was one from the Head. Two Yr9 boys wanted to admit to setting the alarm off by accident, and there were independent witnesses to confirm this.

She also said the evacuation wasn't quick enough. We all know why. Apparently there is a limit to the number of people who can go out of the door near the kitchens because this is a risky area, but is only a short walk straight into the assembly zone. Instead almost everyone has to filter into a narrow staircase, and walk round two sides of the building on a narrow path next to the cookery and DT departments.

I wonder how my colleague got on having to check the toilets on staircases at opposite ends of a corridor. I'm supposed to do one set but I only work mornings.

I guess it's too much to expect that they'll have made provisions in the afternoons when you're not there?

When I was in jr school, for a couple of weeks, the fire alarm would go off about an hour or so just before the end of school on fridays. They finally caught the culprits but we still had to treat it as a real fire alarm (not that we minded of course).

After that they supposedly installed emergency fire alarm switches that sprayed an indelible die. We never found out if that was just a rumour but it certainly stopped any copycats having the same ideas.

Our Work had the "a fire drill must be held after X-months". As a member of the workers communication group I finally convinced them to do a weather check first!
Admittedly it still doesn't stop us from having to file out every time the Staff Canteen sets it off.
