How long will it take for the first dozen 911 calls to come from the school as a result of this drill? On a related note, how may armed robberies, shootings, murders, etc will take place while the police are distracted by this?
Back in my jr. high days, during a fire drill I impulsively pulled one of the fire alarms on my way out the door (stupid - I know). Everyone gathered in their prearranged areas and waited for the alarm to stop sounding - only it didn’t stop.
After a few minutes the alarm was joined by the sound of sirens and soon the school was overrun with fire trucks. Then they were joined by cop cars. In short order it was like a scene from a disaster flick.
We were kept waiting on the street for close to an hour (can you imagine trying to keep order on 500+ kids for that long?!) and finally they silenced the alarm and shuttled us back in.
They conducted two assemblies where the lectured, scolded, and pleaded for someone to rat out the perpetrator. I don’t know if anyone saw, but no one told.
We didn’t have another fire drill that entire year.
